Gigondas 2014

75cl Domaine la Roubine Grenache, Mourvèdre,Syrah France > Rhone Rich, full-bodied, elegant and complex
The style here is riper, more exotic with powerful red and black fruit flavours, a full-flavoured palate and a very long, spicy finish.

Eric Ughetto worked for many years in Paris as a fire-fighter, before returning to the Vaucluse to take charge of the family domaine. Following an oenology degree, his first vintage was 2000, having terminated contracts with the local co-op the previous year. The 12 hectares of vines are spread accross four appellations- Sablet, Seguret, Vacqueyras and Gigondas. He explains “the most important thing for me is the search for the best natural balance”. The wines are incredible, true terroir wines with fantastic definition, depth and perfectly ripe fruit, and they just keep getting better and better ! Revue de Vin de France recently claimed that Eric is becoming one of the leading vignerons of the Southern Rhone.
