About the Producer:
"Domaine Saint Gayan is a small estate located at the foot of the spectacular Dentelles de Montmirail in the Gigondas appellation. One of the great estates of the Southern Rhone, the owners, Jean-Pierre Meffre and his wife Martine produce wines of enormous power and concentration. With 1/3 of the vines being about 100 years old and the yields consequently low, the Gigondas has all the complexity and intensity of flavor one can expect from the Rhone. The Cotes du Rhone, mainly from old vines in the neighbouring village of Sablet, one of the richest and most complex of the appellation, must certainly they represent the best value available from the area." - Importer
