Producer and Tasting Notes


Domaine Les Pallières

Perhaps the finest estate in Gigondas and certainly one of the finest estates in the Southern Rhône. 25 hectares of vines, with an average age of 65-70 years, sitting in its own elevated hidden bowl, facing north west and surrounded by 100 hectares of wild garrigue.

Tasting Notes

This is a solid wine full of black layered fruits and oozing a velvety richness. It possess a richer body than its sibling with a lovely succulent finish.

Food Matches

Goes along on many tasty meats. Especially good with lamb, veal or beef, either cooked or grilled. Also offers a great match to many strong cheeses.
