2 OF EACH: SABLET, VACQUEYRAS & GIGONDAS
The wines are so authentic. They communicate the terroir of Gigondas through their lack of chemical intervention and their prioritisation of the vineyard over the winery (farming rather than oak).
They are LOADED with fruit and have a palate staining charcter but a freshness and elegance from the aspect of the vineyard and the on point timing of their harvest.
They are old Rhone wines with edges, muscle and depth. Unlike modern examples, they are unpolished by oak and extract and offer a (now reasonably rare) glimpse into the authentic, ancient terroir of Gigondas. A cooler vintage like 2018 augments all of this, these are absolutely captivating and compulsive wines. STSWine
