WINES FROM DOMAINE LES PALLIèRES
ABOUT DOMAINE LES PALLIèRESGigondas features a mix of limestone and clay located on both hillsides and plateaus. Typically perfumey and structured.
This domaine is tucked away in the north of the appellation, on the way towards Sablet.
“This is one of the more splendidly situated properties in Gigondas, with vineyards planted on the clay/limestone terraces tucked under the craggy needles of the Dentelles de Montmirail.
Knowing the principals who are now controlling this estate’s destiny, Les Pallières should emerge as one of the super-star estates of the southern Rhône.”
“When Rhône wine dynasties are discussed, it is invariably the 500-year unbroken succession of Chaves at Mauves which catches the imagination. Yet, the Roux family has been farming Les Pallières, in the hills between Gigondas and Les Sablets, from father to son since 1400.”
