"An award winning wine from Domaine de l'Espigouette that will leave you wanting more. An almost herby element is the first thing you'll notice on the nose before oodles of blackfruit come to the fore. Powerful with good volume and smooth tannins."
Domaine de l’Espigouette has now become an impeccable source of delicious wines which offer very good value. Rendements are kept low, 30-39hl/ha, and they have some 32 hectares including 1.5 hectares in Gigondas. A big temperature controlled chai was finished just in time for the 2012 vintage which his enables them to have a single bottling for each wine and then to store in perfect conditions. The average age of the vines is not less than 40 years old. Vinification is traditional, in a mix of a little stainless steel and cement vats. Elevage is then in foudres. You simply are not going to get better Cotes du Rhones from anyone else.
