Domaine du Grand Montmirail - Coteau Rev

On 59 acres of AOC Gigondas hillsides and terraces on the southern slope of the Dentelles du Montmirail cliffs, predominantly Grenache vines (aged 50+ years) along with Syrah and Mourvèdre (15-year vines) are planted in red clay soils with a high proportion of rocky stones. They benefit from a sunny Southern exposure and are sheltered from the blistering Mistral wind by the cliffs.
