About the maker
In the heart of the Rhone Valley, 10 minutes from Châteauneuf du Pape, Château Gigognan is the heir of a deeply rooted history that dates back to the time of Roman colonisation.
The Châteauneuf-du-Pape vineyard is located on an exceptional terroir is very representative of those who have contributed to the reputation of the estate (a single plot of 25 hectares with several other plots nearby). After immense restructuring of the vineyard over the past few years, they've seen a planting of 30 Châteauneuf du Pape hectares to combine with the old grapevines and to develop the aromatic complexities of the wines. Conversion to organic agriculture has been undertaken and the Ecocert certification was awarded for the whole estate in 2010. The wines are balanced, distinctive, powerful, supple and not to be walked past.See the Chateau Gigognan collection here
