Gigondas

The village or commune of Gigondas is without doubt one of the most beautiful wine villages in the world, set in the hills of the Vaucluse region of the southern Rhone Valley - the heart of Provence.  Visiting here it is immediately understandable why wine-lovers and non-drinkers adore this part of France equally.

The wines are certainly ageworthy, albeit less-so than those from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and often represent outstanding value for money, given their lesser-known qualities.
