The Montirius domaine is in the south of the Vacqueyras appellation and has been under the ownership of the Saurel family for 5 generations. In 1996, they fully converted the vineyard to biodynamic methods and released their first biodynamic wine in 1999. Their wines are made entirely in large concrete tanks without any wood to showcase the purity of the fruit.
Their Gigondas is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre. The majority of the juice comes from vines planted in 1925. Ruby with a slight touch of rust in color. Black cherry, baked plum, fig, licorice and pepper on the nose. Cherry, blackberry, leather with cola and some earth, meat and pepper on the palate. Solid acidity and tannins with a lingering finish. I liked this, though I not as much as the Montirius Vacqueyras Garrigues 2005.
