Lavau Gigondas 2019

91 POINTS: James Suckling -
94 POINTS: Wine Direct Tasting Team

"Classic nose of spicy aromas (pepper, nutmeg), typical of the appellation and which accentuate the aromas of blackcurrants & herbs. On the palate, the wine shows a solid yet nicely coated structure, volume and superb length. This Gigondas can be paired with anything off the BBQ as well as coq au vin, a beef stew or casserole."
- Wine Direct Tasting Team

"Raspberries, plums, thyme, orange peel and some peppered meat on the nose. It’s full-bodied with ripe tannins and a meaty, fleshy palate. Very typical for the appellation. Mourvedre, Grenache and Syrah. Drink now."
- James

Maison Lavau was officially created in 1965, deep in the heart of the Rhone Valley, in the department of the Vaucluse. The story of the Lavau family, with its passion for wine and love of the terroir and the land, began in Saint-Émilion in the 19th century.  The story then continued on the other side of the Mediterranean Sea, in Tunisia. René Lavau moved there in 1870 and turned a small estate planted with vines and orange trees into a flourishing business. Thanks, in particular, to the energy and dedication of his son Jean, the family estate quickly became the country’s biggest wine producer.  In 1962, after Tunisia regained its independence, Jean-Guy Lavau, Jean’s son, and his wife Anne-Marie decided to return to France and to take charge of a small winemaking cellar in Sablet which Jean had purchased a few years earlier.  Today the family make a lovely drinkable range of wines that are beautiful expressions of their terroir.
