Made with grape varieties from Gigondas, with 80% being Grenache and 20% being Syrah, the La Ferme du Mont Jugunda Gigondas 2018 is a balanced wine, delightfully easy to drink.
Everything about this wine screams power, from its aroma to its color to its flavor. It exudes a strong dark red color, with an ABV of 14.5%. Its complex aromas give Mediterranean spices and candied red fruit, with faint hints of incense and curry. Elegant and rich on the mouth, it has a great freshness at the onset. It gives flavor notes of red berries and fine tannins.
Despite the strength it exudes, the La Ferme du Mont Jugunda Gigondas 2018 is an easy wine. You can pair it with sauce-based duck dishes, but it is perfect for meat—ossobucco, steak, lamb, venison.
Stephane Vedeau has made a name for himself as a virtuoso of wine. He founded La Ferme du Mont, which moved to their present headquarters of Valres in 2010. He comes from a family of winemakers, and the passion that runs through his blood is very apparent. A truly gifted winemaker, he and his wines are universally praised by critics like Robert Parker. He pays exceptional attention to the vineyard, making sure to use the most natural ways of management possible. It was in 2011 that La Ferme du Mont began cultivating their grapes without any pesticides or fertilizers, just pure, 100% biodynamic practices. And they have continued with that practice since.
Store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 16 to 18°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
