Domaine Palon Gigondas (France)
The estate of Domaine Palon covers 15 ha with an average of 45 years old vines. The soil consists of red clay and sandstone. This beautiful red wine is made of mostly Grenache grapes, supplemented with Syrah and Mourvèdre. The grapes are picked by hand and manually selected in the vineyard. The Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes matured in large oak barrels for 12 months.
This Gigondas has a deep pomegranate colour. The bouquet is dominated by aromas of fresh red fruit, cherries, pepper with tones of Provençal herbs. On the palate full, fleshy fruit is coming forward. A beautiful structure with good tannis and a nice length.
Serve at just below room temperature (17–18°C) with red meats, stews, duck, game and cheese.
