Owner and winemaker of his family’s Châteauneuf du Pape estate since 2006, ‘Guillaume Gonnet, Vigneron’, was created by Guillaume and his Australian wife Kelly. Guillaume and Kelly have always been fascinated by the notion of “terroir”, most notably about how the Southern Rhône varieties express themselves in diverse terroir. Guillaume Gonnet wines are the realisation of their dream to explore the potential of Southern Rhône grape varieties in varing terroir in the South of France, and around the world.

Winemaking

Limestone soil. 60-year-old vines. Grapes are hand picked. Traditional vinification, in concrete vat, stainless steel tank and wooden vat. 80% destemmed. 30-day fermentation and maceration. Aging in concrete tanks and old foudre.

Tasting notes

Dark fruit, plum, blueberry, blackberries, licorice, raisin, slight earthy and herbal notes coming through with a hint of black pepper. Beautiful complexity.

Pairing recommendation

An intensely rich wine, perfect with any great meal of substance. This wine is bold and rich, whilst retaining a beautiful balance on the palate. Think baked lamb, duck confit or a coq au vin rouge. This is a fine wine that will open up beautifully if decanted at least one hour before service.
