Domaine du Cayron Gigondas 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

ou’d be hard-pressed to find a more terroir-expressive wine anywhere in the Southern Rhone; bold, explosive, stunningly evocative garrigues flavors careen from the glass, blaring their stamp of origin like a neon sign. These are old-styled, powerful wines of enormous fruit amplitude and irresistible personality. Furthermore, Cayron is among the most age-worthy of Gigondas, delicious upon release, but improving for well over a decade and holding strong for a long time thereafter. This 15-hectare domaine, run by the Faraud family, is a classic and truly top-flight estate.

Domaine du Cayron:
The domaine has been owned by the Faroud family since 1840 and is now run by three sisters of that family,Delphine,Cendrine and Roseline. There are 17 hectares spread over 20 sites across the Gigondas appellation and they vinify and bottle their own wine
