  • Description

This is a wine created in the heart of the Dentelles of Montmirail, on the rocky terraces of the commune of Gigondas. This wine confers panache and longevity, making it very special

Tasting notes : The 2015 Gigondas Olivier Ravoire is a relatively modern style effort that’s made from 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah that has around 20% of the blend brought up in new barrels. Its deep purple/ruby color is followed by impressive notes of cassis, spice and sweet oak. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, with a forward, charming style, it’s not a massive wine, yet should drink nicely on release and over the following 6-7 years. rating 88-90 -The Wine Advocate,

Wine-making process : The grapes are handpicked, with a very low yield of approximately 20 hl/ha and advanced ripening. The fruits are then de-stalked and treaded, each vintage is then matured separately. The wine-making process is punctuated with manual immersion of the skins in the must and undergoes a long fermentation at controlled temperature in order to enhance extraction and to increase the suppleness of the tannins for this well structured wine.

Wine sensory analysis : Visual aspect: purple colour with violet hues.
Olfactory description: highly colourful nose with fragrances of Garrigue and pit fruits.
Tasting: Potent mouth, initially silky then develops on to well balanced tannins. The finale offers a superb aromatic persistence.

Suggested dish and wine associations : Grilled beef ribs. Potent cheeses.

Best served between 16 and 18°C.
