Domaine Les Florets, Gigondas
Domaine des Florets is a relatively recent success story in Gigondas, having been revived in 2007 with the arrival of new ownership and winemaker Jérôme Boudier. The domaine’s location is stunning, lying in the tiny commune of Les Florets at the foot of the eye-catching Dentelles de Montmirail. Whereas most Gigondas is made from lower-lying, more sun-drenched vineyards, we are in the mountains here, the vines perching precariously above the winery on north-east facing, mountainside terraces, reaching up to 500 metres above sea level. Freshness and finesse, counterpointing power and depth, are core to the domaine’s high altitude Gigondas style.
