Pierre Amadieu le Pas de l'Aigle Gigondas 2007

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

We are fans of this producer and their many expressions from the Rhoneandrsquo;s greatest areas. This brand new release from the legendary 2007 vintage has been set aside for long aging, and reveals tremendous power, complexity, barrel character and style that rivals other wines from the area, and puts most Chandacirc;teaneuf-du-Pape to shame.

Pierre Amadieu:
Our history begins in 1929 when my grand father decides to bottle and trade under the signature Pierre Amadieu his wine coming from the 7 hectares (17 acres) of vineyard in Gigondas passed on by generation to generation. He is then one of the firsts to print the name of the appellation on his bottles and obtains from 1932 a golden medal in the National Agricultural Concours of Paris.I am presen... Read more
Our history begins in 1929 when my grand father decides to bottle and trade under the signature Pierre Amadieu his wine coming from the 7 hectares (17 acres) of vineyard in Gigondas passed on by generation to generation. He is then one of the firsts to print the name of the appellation on his bottles and obtains from 1932 a golden medal in the National Agricultural Concours of Paris.I am presently on the head of the company and I am in charge of winemaking and maturing. I work with my uncle Claude who runs the vineyard. Together we follow the familial way of thinking by respecting soils and traditions in order to make you share wines faithful to the quality ambition of our grandfather and by adding a note of modernity in order to delight the most demanding and the most curious palates.I am not a follower of over-extracted wines and often "heavy" to taste ; my ambition is rather to obtain well-balanced wines with a Burgundy fineness. Through the maturing I try to reveal all the elegance and the richness of our protected terroirs located on the heights of the appellation Gigondas. From vines to the bottling patience and observation are required. Today appreciated all over the world, every vintage reserves its subtleties which I am happy to subject to your appreciation.

Shows the heady ripeness of the vintage, with lots of velvety-textured layers of fig sauce, blackberry paste, melted black licorice and fruitcake. A singed mesquite thread keeps the finish honest. For the hedonist crowd. Drink now through 2017.
