Located on the terraces of the rugged Gigondas appellation, the last outcropping of the mighty alpine chain with the imposing rock formation of the Dentelles de Montmirail looming as a backdrop, this classic southern Rhone estate makes only about 8,000 cases of Gigondas every year. This historic domaine has been a reference for Gigondas and was very instrumental in promoting Gigondas to Appellation Controlée status in 1971.

The Gigondas of Domaine Raspail-Ay is an artful blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre that is ripe, generous, and rich on the palate. The wine offers mouthful of ripe, dark fruits – black cherries, cassis and raspberries – with notes of licorice and black pepper on the back palate. The tannins are ripe and supple, mellowed by 20 months or more in large, ancient oak foudres. In addition, the wine is aged for several months in old demi-muids in the ground-level storage rooms (chais). The resulting wine is complex with ripe, dark fruit aromas, juicy acidity accompanied by a supple, rich texture with long, attractively perfumed finish.
