Chateau de Montmirail Gigondas

Chateau de Montmirail Gigondas Maurice Archimbaud patiently built up the estate with the combination of two properties: a family farm, located at 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 mountainous landscape of the Dentelles de Montmirail which dramatically influence viticulture in the area. The vineyard in Gigondas is distributed on the slopes of the mountain on a clay-limestone soil. According to AOC regulations, Gigondas is to be made from a maximum of 80% Grenache with a minimum 15% Syrah and/or Mourvèdre. A maximum 10% of other Rhône varietals may be included in the blend with the exception of Carignan. Tasting Note :Intense aromas of deep red berries and bramble fruit alongside a gentle herbaceous note. Full-bodied with a powerful structure, the palate showcases darker fruit, blackberries and liquorice. Fine tannins create an elegant finish. Food Pairings; Pair with roast meats, especially game.
