Domaine Fourmone Fauquet Gigondas 2022
|Grape||Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre|
What We Say
Lovely, rich, spicy, powerful red blend from the sunny Southern Rhone; a perfect winter wine, especially when paired with roasted meats or a slow-cooked stew.
What They Say
The 30 year-old vines of Le Fauquet are grown in 'Le Petit Montmirail'; South South West of the famous limestone massif of Les Dentelles de Montmirail. The vines produce a greedy wine, very fruity with rich aromas. This pure and distinguished wine is made with Grenache and Syrah grape varieties which give it a personality of its own.
