  • Winemaker Notes Established in 1960 by Maurice Archimbaud, the Château de Montmirail is now managed by his daughter, Monique Archimbaud Bouteiller, and her children. The vineyard sitting on the two communes of Vacqueyras and Gigondas, is largely the work of Maurice Archimbaud who patiently built up the area based on the combination of two properties: a family farm, located in Vacqueyras he inherited from his father Gabriel Archimbaud, and on the vineyard Gigondas created in the sixties by clearing steep slopes of Dentelles de Montmirail.
  • Tasting Notes Clear yellow color with aromas of honey and citrus fruits. pale yellow . Discreet nose but the first of a beautiful finesse , bouquet aeration reveals notes of white flowers, white fruit and honey. Round and creamy mouth grows in strength until a long elegant finish. Ideal on a truffle omelette .Pairs well with light sauce fish, white meats and goat cheese.
  • Vineyard The area of ​​45 ha is spread over the slopes of Montmirail Laces regarding the Gigondas appellation and on the set of the other Vacqueyras. Low yields on clay -limestone soils give the wines strength and balance . Careful work on restructuring the field allows Montmirail to keep a balance between wealth brought by our oldest vines (some aged 80 ) and the freshness of our plantings .
  • Vinification The grapes arc meticulously selected, destcmmed and directly pressed.During the fermentation the temperature is maintained under 15C.

    A complete renovation of the cellar was completed in 2000 to improve winemaking and to meet current standards. Mostly of concrete tanks and enameled steel are used as these allow for vinification in the pure respect for family tradition. A total stalking and long fermentation give the wines finesse and power.
