Famille Perrin Sélections Parcellaires Gigondas - L'Argnée Vieilles Vignes - 2015

This wine gets its exceptional aromas from vines spanning less than 1 hectare, with nearly 100 years in age.

Presentation

The vintage
2015 was a magnificent year in the south as well, characterized by excellent sanitary conditions thanks to the mild, wet winter, followed by a relatively hot, dry spring. The vines coped well with the extreme heat and lack of rain in the summer thanks to good hydric reserves. Following satisfactory flowering, rapid and regular ripening was assisted by rain that fell in August, producing berries rich in phenolic compounds and anthocyanins. As in the north, harvesting took place under excellent conditions.
Description
A small plot of less than 1 hectare of pre-Phyloxera vines (around 100 years old). The yields are very small and the production is limited to 1500 bottles a year.
Situation
Located at the South-Western end of the Appellation, at the heart of the historical village of Gigondas.
