Domaine des Espiers, Gigondas, Les Grames, 2017

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

Grenache / Garnacha

Grenache / Garnacha 

Grenache grows well in hot, dry regions, though it can develop very high (15 degrees+) alcohol.

As such it is grown principally in Southern France and Spain (as Garnacha). It is usually blended with other varieties in the Southern Rhône and Languedoc (Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Cinsaut and others).

Its flavour usually encompasses the...

Domaine des Espiers, Gigondas, Les Grames, 2017

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. Now-2026

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.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
