Chateau La Croix des Pins Gigondas 'Les Dessous des Dentelles'Regular price $37.99
Château La Croix des Pins boasts exposure to a unique microclimate due to its location between Mont Ventoux (“Giant of Provence”) and Les Dentelles de Montmirail. This area, classified by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve, provides the vineyards with hours of maximum exposure to sunlight, protecting them from harsh Mistral gusts while simultaneously permitting winds to chill the vineyards in the evening.
Today, the 89-acre property is owned by Eric Petitjean and Jean Pierre Valade and hosts a barrel cellar, vat room and modern equipment to separate grape varieties sourced from three different appellations—Ventoux, Gigondas and Beaumes de Venise. Jean Pierre’s unique expertise has inspired many of the Château La Croix des Pins vintages, resulting in wines that are fruity and fresh and whose drinking experience grants them the status of a “wine producer of emotions.”
A blend of 65% Grenache Noir, 25% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, the nose is fruity, a mixture of raspberry, wild strawberry and red currant. Also perceived are typical scents of dark chocolate mixed with notes of Morello cherry and Kirsch. The mouth is supple, round, with a nice sweetness underpinned by the aromas of fruit paste. Enjoy it now or keep it in your cellar for 8 to 10 years.
