Mas des Restanques Gigondas
PRODUCER: The history of Mas des Restanques began in 1995, with the union of two family terroirs. Joining forces as two knowledgeable winemaking families, both with long-term heritages in the Rhone region, Jean-Luc and Josiane Faraud launched their own winery in 2007.
VINEYARD: In the heart of Southern France, at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, the estate is divided on nine hectares between two noble appellations: Vacqueyras and Gigondas. In 2012, Mas de Restanques was certified organic by ECOCERT.
WINEMAKING: The grapes are manually harvested and then destemmed. The Grenache (30%) and Syrah (70%) are vinified separately with a traditional fermentation over 30 days, with regular punching down, pumping over and daily batonnage.
TASTING NOTE: Beautifully purple in colour. On the nose, aromas of black pepper, candied fruit, fig and cherry. Dense and concentrated on the palate with tight tannins and notes of coffee and spice.
Also available in Magnum format.
