CHÂTEAU GIGOGNAN, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 2012

CHÂTEAU GIGOGNAN, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red 2012

Manual harvested with severe sorting .   Grapes are crushed and destemmed. Fermentation in heat regulated stainless steel tanks each variety separately .  Long vating period with  pumping over and punching of the cap process for better extraction and finer tannins .Blending  after malolactic fermentation. Matured for 5 % in 1year oak barrels and demi muids(225L and 600L) and 95% in cement  tanks for better micro oxygenation favorable to ageing before bottling in Spring 2014.

Very low yields for this Chateauneuf du Pape, enjoying fine aromas of ripe fruit and underwood, powerful and generous with fine and subtil tanins. Ideal pairing companion with red meat, game or cheese with character We advise to drink as from 3 to 4 years of age but may be laid for 8 to 10 years.  Serving temperature between 18 and 20°C.
