A full-bodied Gigondas red wine blend made from mostly Grenache wine grapes and 20% Mourvèdre fragrant with dark cherry, black pepper and spicy aromas on the nose, dry, mouth-filling with cherry liqueur, dried wild herbs and pepper spice flavours finishing zesty on the palate. Enjoy now and for the next five years.

Reviews and Ratings

Domaine Montirius Terre Des Aînés 2016 is a classic Grenache and Mourvèdre, full-bodied and juicy red wine blend from the Gigondas wine region. Just a vibrant and delicious Rhone red. Look for blackberry, raspberry, baking spices, earthy florals, wild herbs and cedar brush flavours long on the palate. Enjoy now with a equally juicy prime rib steak or hold for five years. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
