Guillaume Gonnet Le Reveur Cotes Du Rhone 2015


SKU 03698


The Gonnet family has been settled in Bédarrides since 1600. Etienne Gonnet and Jeanne Brunier married and created Font de Michelle in 1950. Today the domaine is being managed by the grandchild of Etienne--Guillaume Gonnet. Before joining his family as 3rd generation winemaker, Guillaume travelled the world working in some of the most famous wineries in Bordeaux, Burgundy, Napa Valley, New Zealand and finally in Australia where he met his future wife, Kelly. The Guillaume Gonnet –Vigneron wines are an exciting new chapter for this lovely and diligent young couple. Guillaume and Kelly have purchased their own plots in Chateauneuf du Pape. With their vines, and selected parcels inherited from Guillaume’s family, Guillaume continues to produce wine that reflects his philosophy for winemaking - Minimal interference with the terroir effect by following biodynamic agricultural principles, ensuring the wine is balanced, soft with elegant tannins and very little wood influence. Guillaume has always been fascinated by the notion of terroir, most notably about how the Southern Rhône varieties express themselves in diverse terroir.

The beautiful robin on the Gonnet labels can often be found flying around in their organically farmed vineyards and embodies all that drives the creation of these wines - dreams, liberty, and terroir. Made of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Cinsault, this is aged in stainless steel. Deep black color; grilled meat and blackberry flavors, deep garrigue with hints of animal. In the mouth the wine is explosive, peppery and juicy. Wets stones emerge with loads of garrigue on the finish.
