When you cross north to the other side of the Dentelles de Montmirail you are in Gigondas land, a slightly lower altitude at 1,400 ft. with iron-rich soils. The 2014 vintage is more Grenache-forward than previous vintages. The blend is 70/30, Grenache-Syrah from Etienne Menthon's first plantings in the 1950s and 1960s. Typically these old-vines, yield 25 hl/ha. In 2014, the yield was 20 hl/ha. While yields were lowered in the vineyard, there were no out-of-ordinary practices in the cellar, follow the fool-proof recipe: destem grapes, ferment in cement, age in foudres, and bottle when ready. Case in point, get some GIG while you can.

The 2014 Gigondas is a solid, if not outstanding blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah; 20% of the blend aged in two-year-old French oak barrels. Medium-bodied, rounded, and surprisingly mouth-filling and textured in the vintage, it gives up classic notes of darker berries, plums, licorice and leafy herbs on the nose. It should drink nicely on release and have 7-8 years of longevity.
