Château de Montmirail “Cuvée de Beauchamp” Gigondas

£20.00

Gigondas often offers more bang for your buck than it’s more established neighbour Châtreauneuf-du-Pape and this is no exception. Intense aromas of red berries and bramble fruit and mediterranean herbs. Full-bodied with a powerful structure, the palate showcases darker fruit, blackberries and liquorice. Fine tannins create an elegant finish.

Château de Montmirail

 

Maurice Archimbaud patiently built up the estate with the combination of two properties: a family farm, located in Vacqueyras which he inherited from his father, Gabriel Archimbaud, and a vineyard which he created in Gigondas in 1960.

Château de Montmirail is now managed by his daughter, Monique Archimbaud Bouteiller, assisted by her children – the fourth generation. Today the vines cover 20 hectares in Vacqueyras and 24 hectares in Gigondas.

Montmirail is derived from the Latin mons mirabilis meaning ‘admirable mountain’, a reference to the landscape of the Dentelles de Montmirail which dramatically influence viticulture in the area.

Vacqueyras is situated on a plateau of clay-limestone and although it has been a wine-producing region since the 15th century, it only gained its AOC status in 1990.

Description

The grapes are sorted, destemmed and crushed before being transferred to stainless steel tanks. Fermentation lasts 20 days with cap management throughout to extract the optimum amount of colour, tannins and flavour. The resulting wine is aged for 15 months in bottle prior to release.
