A breath of fresh air in the realm of Gigondas. This is completely unoaked, and careful picking times mean the final wine is supple and silky, whilst maintaining the powerful flavour Gigondas lovers adore.
Brooding and richly flavoured, it is brimming with notes of plum and fresh fig, alongside a tickle of sweet spice. Just delicious.
Based in the heart of Vacqueyras, Domaine Montirius are often cited to be one of the stars of this Southern Rhone appellation. Now run by the Saurel's fifth geenration, Christine and Eric, it is a labour-intensive operation that sees all of its vineyards farmed Biodynamically.
These are wines that offer exceptional value, from areas of the Rhone often overlooked in the sphere of fine wine. Domaine Montirius meticulously craft terroir-driven reds, which are generous and expressive when young, but also benefit from 5-10 years of bottle age.
