Chateau de Montmirail Vacqueyras 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. Tasting Note :Intense aromas of ripe red cherries, plums and blackcurrants with underlying notes of spice. Full-bodied with fantastic weight on the palate. Liquorice and deep bramble fruit flavours develop in layers leading to a long well-balanced finish. Food Pairings :Perfect with rich red meats or strong cheese
