"Dark fruit with black pepper, cloves and liquorice mixed with just a touch of tobacco. Massively good value for a Cotes du Rhone."
Domaine de l’Espigouette has now become an impeccable source of delicious wines which offer very good value. Rendements are kept low, 30-39hl/ha, and they have some 32 hectares including 1.5 hectares in Gigondas. A big temperature controlled chai was finished just in time for the 2012 vintage which his enables them to have a single bottling for each wine and then to store in perfect conditions. The average age of the vines is not less than 40 years old. Vinification is traditional, in a mix of a little stainless steel and cement vats. Elevage is then in foudres. You simply are not going to get better Cotes du Rhones from anyone else.
