Powerful mouthful of red fruit, almost sweet but with splendid mass and compact tannins. Impressive. There's a drive to this, an extra dimension of energy which makes it so enjoyable to drink, even with that concentration and body.... Read More

Since Philippe Cartoux at Espiers took up organic viticulture (certified) we think his bold and chunky wines have got even better. His Gigondas, named after the vineyard is about 3/4 Grenache and 1/4 Syrah, is given eight months in large 600 litre demi-muids.

Philippe singlehandedly created his estate from parcels of vines on the western slopes of the Dentelles de Montmirail, around Vacqueyras and Sablet - he accepts that such is the rise in land values over the last fifteen years that he would never be able to do this now. All his vines are farmed organically.

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
