Producer:

From the UK agent, Christian Honorez:
“Representing the 7th generation of his family to work with vines and wine, Jean Gardiés owns some of the finest vineyards (35 hectares in total, divided into a myriad of different parcels) on both the chalky-clay soils of Vingrau and the black schist and limestone outcrops of Espira de l’Agly, above Perpignan. One of the great, yet relatively unsung French producers, he is quietly making wines that represent his identity and interpretation of his terroir. Mixing traditional and modern styling, his wines have great intensity and definition with strong personality. The whites exhibit lovely mineral touches; whilst the reds have all the Roussillon power balanced by freshness and, again, classic mineral character. His offerings are classic Catalan wines that express perfectly the rugged intensity and beauty of this fabulous region. Jean’s 30 years of experience add to his innate ability to craft wines that are distinctive and as authentic as any wines can be. “To live in harmony with rough and wild nature, to understand that everything comes from the soil and from the permanent attention that this brings” is Jean Gardiés philosophy.”

Old Bridge rating:

Rich but fresh, this is a really fine example of southern French red wine, no heaviness and no ‘rustic’ edge.
