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

Yield of 3000 vines/ha. 45-year-old vines. Grapes are hand picked. Vinification in concrete tanks. 50% stems removed. 20-day fermentation and maceration in concrete tank. Malolactic fermentation.

Tasting notes

This wine is a gorgeous balance of power and elegance. Big, juicy fruit flavors dominate this wine; fig, blueberries, blackberries, flattered by delicious notes of dark chocolate. Slight hints of violet coming through from the Syrah and little spiciness on the finish.

Pairing recommendation

A wonderfully complex wine like this one deserves a slow cooked meal Something classic like a baked leg of lamb and root vegetables served with a red wine jus, or something a little more funky, like a North African inspired, lamb and apricot cous cous or a slow cooked Indian beef curry. The lovely spicy notes at the end of the palate make it a great wine to accompany these rich, fragrant dishes.
