2021 Gigondas

Domaine de Durban
Discount Eligible $34.00
SOLD OUT

The high-altitude vineyards at the southern end of the appellation, an unheralded sector, gives this Gigondas finesse and high acid purity. From their impeccably tended grapes and gentle winemaking, Durban does here what they do best, keeping the focus and precision of the terroir as well as loads of fruit and pleasure. Another feather in their cap of rouges, for sure.

Kermit inspecting wine barrels

For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
