Gigondas is a velvety, ripe southern Rhône red, much under the shadow of its near neighbour Châteauneuf du Pape. Yet its wines are some of the Rhône's finest. Domaine Montirius has been making wine in Gigondas and next door Vacqueyras for five generations. They started turning all their vineyards biodynamic in 1996 and this extra care is carried through into every aspect of winemaking. Terre des Ainés takes its name from a parcel of vines which have always been handed down to the firstborn of each generation. The vines are 75-85 years old, so yields are naturally tiny – 30hl/ha – and concentration intense. From this small yield vintage, the wine sees no oak, the emphasis is all on fruit. A perfect wine with lamb. Decant early or cellar.
