Domaine la Haute Marone Le Cru des Dentelles de Montmirail Gigondas
This product is currently sold out.
At Kwoff we think the Domaine la Haute Marone 'Le Cru des Dentelles de Montmirail', Gigondas is Delicious. Intense fruit are the hallmark of this glorious Gigondas that is a great value alternative to Chateaunuef-du-Pape (In fact.. shhh.... don't tell anyone, but we actually prefer this to a lot of the Pape we've tried). When you break out a bottle of Le Cru des Dentelles de Montmirail you'll be taken with the intense aromas of ripe raspberries and black cherries, then a wisp of smoke creeps in along with some hints of toasted cocoa beans. Give this wine some time to breathe before diving in and then the real magic happens. Deep and intense, this wine slowly reveals its secrets - black cherries, dark chocolate, a hint of clove and nutmeg - hugely rich and enveloping but with a Southern Rhone elegance. Blimey, this is a great wine and probably why each of the partners at Kwoff has a few bottles in their own collection! When you do try this wine, it's amazing with a simple, mature farmhouse cheddar, crackers and onion pickle chutney.
