A full review of 2009 Gigondas features under the tab 2009 Southern Rhône. Click on the sub tab The Leading Wines. It is high quality year there. Visits to Domaines Martinelle in Ventoux and Domaine La Boussière at Gigondas have been written up - they represent the husband and wife team of Corinna Kruse and Thiérry Faravel, and are leaders in both appellations.
Please read an article on Le Vieux Donjon, one of the only domaines at Châteauneuf-du-Pape still making just one red wine. Reflections on that, the history of the 15 hectare domaine, and comments specifically on their 1990 and 1981 feature under Veterans Corner.
