Domaine du Cayron
Considered by many to be the benchmark producer in the appellation, Cayron produces a Gigondas of phenomenal richness and incredible longevity. Their vines are on average 40 + years old with parcels up to 70 years old. These are old styled, powerful wines of enormous fruit, amplitude and irresistible personality. Furthermore, Cayron is among the most age-worthy of Gigondas, delicious upon release, but improving for well over a decade and holding strong for a long time thereafter. This 15 hectare domaine, run by the Faraud family is a classic and truly top-flight estate.
