The terroir of Château Gigognan in Rhone Valley
The Châteauneuf-du-Pape vineyard, located in the south of the appellation, covers forty hectares and consists of a set of terraces of rolled pebbles. In 2017, additional parcels located on the emblematic terroirs of the appellation were added to the already existing vineyard. They are composed of slopes of pebbles on clay-limestone marls of the Myocene. The château and the surrounding Côtes-du-Rhône vineyards represent a total of forty hectares too and are located mostly in a historic sector in Sorgues on clay-limestone soil with an overlay of rolled pebbles. In 2019, the estate bought or-ganic parcels in the Gard in Domazan . This colder and “younger” terroir will bring more complexity, strengthens and color to the wine.
