Wine tasting at Domaine des Goubert in Gigondas.

Their philosophy : A great wine is first a great terroir, with an excellent soil, a good exposure, good vine varieties, happy vine plants growing quietly. Then, it is also an ounce of “savoir-faire” (know-how), the love of your work and a no-limit respect for your land. Wonderful promise.
Their “classic” Gigondas is generous, a mix of ripe fruits, spices and tobacco.

Vacqueyras is our next and last winetasting.

In the village, Philippe, the manager of Chateau de Montmirail welcome us, he is the owner of this wonderful wine estate. We will discover their Vacqueyras and Gigondas. Unforgettable.

The three main varieties of the area are Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre.

  • Grenache brings fruit and power.
  • The Syrah grape, structure and liquorice.
  • The Mourvèdre for its spiciness.

Low yields on clay-limestone soils give their wines strength.
