“Deep ruby-red. Ripe red berries, fruitcake and candied flower aromas are complemented by a smoky mineral element that builds in the glass. Broad, smoke-accented black raspberry, bitter cherry and lavender pastille flavors become spicier with air. Broad and pliant in style, finishing with gently gripping tannins and repeating smokiness.”

“The 2019 Gigondas Les Reinages is terrific, with ripe cherry and redcurrant-like fruit as well as peppery garrigue and some resinous, foresty nuances. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, ripe, concentrated Gigondas with beautiful fruit, ripe yet building tannins, and a great finish.”

“Bright and lively, with a very fresh core of raspberry and black cherry coulis flanked by violet, anise and alder notes. Stays racy and focused through the finish. Very refined in the end. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now through 2027.  ”


The vineyard lies entirely within the commune of Gigondas in the Vaucluse, at the foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail range. The soils consist mainly of red clay and stony alluvium over hillsides or wide terraces. 


After crushing and destemming of the crop, the alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks over 10 days. This is followed by 8 to 10 days of maceration to improve extraction. After drawing off and pressing, the malolactic fermentation takes place in tanks. The wine is racked and aerated to allow stabilization of its ingredients. It is then kept in tanks, to preserve the freshness of its aromas, before being bottled after 12 months of ageing.

Tasting Notes

The color is a deep garnet red. In its youth it reveals black cherry aromas which will evolve towards notes of woodland and spices. On the palate, this is a warm, heady wine whose texture is well-rounded and silky. The finish is perfectly balanced.

Food Pairing

This wine is suitable throughout the meal, and goes particularly well with rich sauces, game, red meat and dishes.
