Gigondas is the greatest of the smaller appellations in the southern Rhône and Château Raspail, run by the hugely talented Christian Meffre, makes one of its very best wines. Predominantly grenache, syrah and mourvèdre, this is a lovely cuvée we have been drinking in glorious, sunny Scottish highland weather.

An elegant, medium-bodied and peppery Gigondas from what is among the top estates in the appellation. Having initially offered this wine en primeur, we’ve managed to secure subsequent parcels which have been of the same great quality, and which you, our customers have loved.

A bit of history...

The name Gigondas is of Roman origin, the wines of which were highly prized by the ancient Romans. Appropriately, the estate’s current 19th-century Italianate château in the limestone hills just to the north-west of Châteauneuf-du-Pâpe was built with the proceeds of Eugène Raspail’s sale of a fine Roman sculpture to the British Museum in the 1860s. A copy of the statue remains in the château.

"A typical blend around Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre from one of the top satellite appellations around Châteauneuf-du-Pâpe. Spicy and peppery with a touch of leather and game to dark, rich bramble fruit. On the palate a little bright edge of raspberry adds a top note, while liquorice and endive underpin the black fruit succulence. This feels as though it is built to age for me, and I would imagine 10 years will be taken in its stride."
Tom Cannavan, Wine-pages.com
"The 2019 Ch. Raspail Gigondas from Christian Meffre, one of the region?s finest producers, is a cracker. With rich, sweet, ripe fruit, liquorice, herbs and a dusting of cocoa, it?'s full-on and complex but ever so drinkable. Marina and I polished off the bottle very happily with vast portions of my venison and mushroom pie."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
