Domaine Notre Dame des Pallieres is a very old family estate, whose name comes from a place of pilgrimage visited by the Provencal people in the Middle Age and due to protect them from the "bad fevers" (the plague).The old vines goes deep in the chalky clayey subsoil and profit by the little Trignon valley microclimate. The grapes are harvested by hand and crafted according traditional winemaking methods.The classic cuvee (80% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre), matured in vats for 3 to 4 years, then bottled, expresses the delicacy and depth of the greatest Gigondas. The maturation in French oak barrels during 8 to 12 months as soon as the malo lactic fermentation is undergone adds to the new barrel cuvee (75% Grenache, 15 % Mourvedre) toasted and vanilla aromas, resulting in a complex and charming wine.Jean Pierre and Claude Roux will be delighted to welcome you in the old Provencal farm to make you discover these wines.

Tasting Notes: Robert Parker- The 2015 Gigondas les Mourres is a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, matured in concrete. It starts with a stunning display of garrigue and spice on the nose, followed by ripe cherry fruit on the full bodied, creamy palate. There's a touch of warmth to the lingering finish, so I would opt to drink this by 2025.
