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.
Delicious soft, fresh and fruity wine. Made from 100% Grenache, from 30 year old grape vines planted on clay and slate soil. Aged in concrete tanks.
The style is fruit driven and youthful. Aromatic nose of cranberry, blackberry and licorice. In the mouth, the wine is surprisingly balanced with light tannic structure and warm fruit. Flavors of cassis, strawberries, raspberry and liquorice. Opening the wine half an hour before drinking it is very beneficial.
Tastes great with Indian curry, tagine dishes, pasta with tomato sauce and charcuterie.
