    This wine is the end result of one vat. It is a masterpiece of balance, structure, aromas, spices, and its roundness and elegance. In its youth and in its future maturity, it will give great pleasure. For us it is a gift offered by Nature. It is Unique.
    Wine Advocate 90 points - Made from the same blend as the 2009, the 2009 Gigondas Confidentiel comes from a tiny 4.5 acre vineyard in the sector of Gigondas known as La Tour. This brilliant effort reveals notes of black cherries, licorice, camphor and smoky roasted herbs as well as velvety tannins. It is a fleshy, succulent Gigondas to drink over the next 7-8 years. (Oct 2011)

    Wine maker notes
    Vines situated in a corner of a large 10 hectare parcel called ‘La Beaumette’ gave birth to this wine. In fact, in 2004, thanks to differing maturity these grapes were harvested and vinified separately from the rest of the parcel. The soil, sub soil, exposition, slope, vine varieties and the age of the vines are identical in the whole parcel. Even the indigenous yeasts analysed in the following years were identical. We made this ‘discovery’ during our winetasting and pre-blending of our Gigondas vats after the malolactic fermentation. Compared with the other two vats from the same parcel, this new arrival surprised us in its fullness and harmony despite its youth. We thought that the blending of the three vats would give an even more complex wine, which was not the case. What was the difference? We had two choices, to do a blending identical to other years and let this gift of nature disappear, or to share our new discovery, despite not understanding why, with the Montirius amateurs by doing a separate bottling. We did not know if this phenomenon would be reproduced. This is how this vintage was born; it is a ‘confidence’ in the location.
