Vidal-Fleury Gigondas 2012

Established in 1781 in the Northern Rhone Valley, Vidal-Fleury is the
oldest continuously operating winery in the Rhone Valley. Today they vinify
and age wines from the Rhone's renowned appelations, focusing on the
choicest terroirs, allowing ample time to age and mature the wines.

Dark red colour. Aromas of blackberry, cherry, prune with some notes of
garrigue and violet. The palate is stuctured and unctuous. Grenache
driven with good tannins and some fatness with cherry and pepper
