The opinion of the sommelier

The opinion of the sommelierThe white version of “ Vignes du Prieuré ” was one of the first one ever to be in a VitiBox a few years ago. That’s why I’m so happy to present you this month its red version in an amazing vintage ! The colour changes, but pleasure is still there. The first nose smells orignal : it’s not that common to find aromas of fresh herbs and strawberry together. However, it’s enchanting ! Silky, fruity and powerful, it feels like biting in a ripe fruit just picked up from the tree. It’s intense and refreshing ! 

 

Terroir

Planted on a sunny terroir, Château Gigognan’s vines are also in a place where strong winds blow, notably the warm and powerful mistral. Thus, berries ripen but keep their freshness thanks to the wind. This kind of terroir gives amazing wines : the high level of sugar and alcohol given by the sun is balanced by wind’s freshness, and the result is a powerful wine with a great length.

lecepage Grape variety

The blend of grenache, syrah and carignan is very typical from the southern Rhône Valley. Genache gives fruity aromas and sweetness, syrah brings some spicy flavours and carignan gives structure thanks to its high level in tannins.

lemillesime Vintage

2014 was a very good vintage in the Rhône Valley. Winter was rainy and filled soils with water before the flower blossomed. Then, spring was sunny and warm, which are ideal conditions for a regular blossoming that will bring later harmony to the wine, and summer was a little bit cold than usual, but sunny so photosynthesis ensured a good ripening or the grapes. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Vines were planted in Château Gigognan when Gaule was a province of the Roman Empire. Later, the Archbishops of Avignon made this area their land along with neighbouring Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Then, various aristocratic families owned successively the vineyard, which is always good as they obviously wanted to have good wine at their table. Nowadays, Jacques and Sophie Callet perpetuate the grandeur of Château Gigognan by making wines worthy of being on the best tables.
