About Gigondas

Located in France's Southern Rh么ne, Gigondas produces wines that are rich Grenache-based blends, thanks in part to the region鈥檚 Mediterranean climate and red clay-alluvial soils. Under the AOP regulations, only red and ros茅 wines may be produced; white wines are simply declassified to C么tes-du-Rh么ne status. A mandated 50% Grenache is required in the wine, with Mourv猫dre and/or Syrah usually accounting for the bulk of the remaining blend鈥攁dding structure, savory tones and color intensity to Grenache鈥檚 alcoholic power and lush richness. These wines are often compared to the great wines of Ch芒teauneuf-du-Pape, but can even offer better value. To discover the best bottles of the region, visit our Wine Ratings.
