2017 Saint-Gayan Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge Trescartes Rhône
The Côtes-du-Rhône Trescartes is the entry-level wine of Domaine Saint-Gayan - but what a wine this is! Already with this wine, they show all their strengths: It's both spicy and powerful, but also really balanced, which is really not a matter of course in this price range. It's a blend of the classic grape varieties of the southern Rhône, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Full, dark berry, plum, roasted thyme, some pepper. Ripe tannin and very moderate acidity. Matured in concrete tanks and bottled unfiltered. Goes wonderfully with strong braised dishes or black olives.
The Domaine Saint-Gayan of the Meffre family from Gigondas has been making wine for quite some time now - since 1703 to be precise. Today's owners Jean-Pierre and Martine Meffre make wonderfully unagitated, but exemplarily powerful, harmonious and spicy wines on the southern Rhône. Their largest vineyard holdings are located in the famous sites around the small town of Gigondas, in addition to plots in the neighbouring villages of Sablet, Rasteau, Châteauneuf-du-Pâpe and the Côtes-du-Rhône appellation. It is striking that the Meffres can build on a respectable stock of very old vines. The Grenache vines, in particular, are sometimes over a hundred years old. The yield is thus reduced in a natural way, the wines gain in concentration and depth. Common to all their wines is that they all have had enough time to develop. They mature in concrete and large wooden barrels, are bottled unfiltered and are only put on sale after a generous bottle ageing. In this way, the Meffres ensure that the wines are always ready to drink and, in the best case, achieve a high degree of harmony in taste.
