Gigondas (AOC) is in the region of the Rhône Valley Côtes-du-Rhône wines in southern Rhône, in Vaucluse. Red and rosé wines are made from Grenache Noir, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvèdre grapes. Most wines are red, and Grenache Noir dominates. The reds age very well. Maximum yields are restricted and the minimum alcoholic strength must be 12.5%. For red wines, the Grenache grape must account for no more than 80% of the blend with Syrah and Mourvèdre providing the rest.
