Overview

A unicorn of a wine, Gigondas Rosé, only accounts for a scant 1% of the production in the entire appellation. For Julien Brechet, his Gigondas Rosé is made from a selection of Grenache parcels sourced from a diversity of terroirs. These grapes are picked before harvest commences for his various Gigondas Rouge cuvées. Its salmon-colored hue comes entirely from free-run juice, which sees an unusually long élévage of 6 months before bottling. As a result, this wine isn’t your usual ephemeral rosé but something more serious and gastronomic – a wine that recalls the rosés of yore that were made of sturdier stuff and drank well into the following year and beyond.
