Description

La Solitude
Gigondas Bellecoste Rouge

Grenache – Syrah – Mourvèdre – Cinsault – Clairette Rose

The Dentelles de Montmirail is also a land of famous vineyards. This terroir produces the prestigious wines of Beaumes de Venise (AOC Muscat Beaumes de Venise) and Rasteau, with their reds and sweet wines, and Gigondas and  Vacqueyras with their Côtes-du-Rhone red wines.

 Terroir & grape varieties

  • The vineyard is cultivated with the greatest respect for nature and people. The grapes come from terroirs located on the southern slope of the Dentelles de Montmirail. 
  • Those terroirs, among the highest of the appellation, are located between 400 and 500 meters above sea level. 
  • A magnificent hillside whose soil is made of red clay and limestone glow. Such soils naturally give small yields. For vintage 2019, 30 hectoliters/hectare.

Winemaking and aging

  • The grapes are vinified in whole bunches in concrete tanks. 
  • The vatting lasts a fortnight with gentle extractions. 
  • Aging takes place for 65% in vats and for 35% in barrels of several wines.
