King of southern Rhône Valley grapes, Grenache Noir reveals itself here in all its splendour. With the morning sunlight limited by the Dentelles de Montmirail, this grape’s ripening period is considerably lengthened, which works in its favour (Grenache needs time to express itself fully).
Used to a lesser extent, Syrah boosts the garnet hue and brings a certain aromatic intensity.
Mourvèdre enhances the spicy, aromatic complexity typical of Gigondas wines, and is well-suited to ageing in oak. Cinsault, Clairette and a few Terret Noir, Counoise and Picardan vines are also found here.
