2015 Domaine du Cayron Gigondas Grenache Blend
Four sisters – Roseline, Cendrine, and Delphine – are the fifth generation to run this historic 40-acre estate in Gigondas in the shadow of the Dentelles de Montmirail.
The family embodies the concept of one domaine, one wine. There are no reserve wines, no little cheapies, just one excellent wine that is considered the best of the appellation.
This is very much a terroir-driven wine. One that contains no artifice from the winemaking and also tastes very much of the place that it is grown, displaying the flavours of garrigue – that mix of herbs that is said to carry in the breeze across the southern Rhône valley.
