Maison Lavau – Château Maucoil

Grape varieties:

Grenache noir (50%), Syrah (40%), Mourvèdre (10%)

Tasting notes:

This wine is deep on the nose with pronounced spicy aromas (peper, nutmeg), typical of the appellation and which accentuate the aromas of blackcurrants and raspberry jam. On the palate, the wine shows a solid yet nicely coated structure , volume and superb length

Serving and food pairings: 

Serve at 17-18°C allow the wine to express its full complexity. Decanting before serving would also be beneficial. This Gigondas can be paired with guinea fowl, coq au vin, a beef stew or casserole, and other prepared dishes, even if spicy or highly seasoned
