1981 Gigondas Les Pallières – a treat with roast chicken
Last night we enjoyed one of our declining bottles of Gigondas that we bought in the mid-1980s directly from the individual domaines. In this instance the lovely, rich and sweetly fruited 1981 Domaine Les Pallières – the wine was as magnificent as the label! We bought this from the Roux brothers, the previous owners of this estate, one of the leading estates in Gigondas. It was perfect with a simply roasted chicken.
