Domaine Raspail-Ay

Domaine Raspail-Ay is a French wine winery in the southern Rhône wine region of France.[1] It carries the Gigondas AOC appellation and is located in the commune of Gigondas, in Vaucluse. The red wine blend bottled at the estate is 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, and is generally 14%-15% alcohol.[2] Domaine Raspail-Ay is a small estate of just 40 acres, and produces no more than 8,000 cases each vintage.[2] The wine is dry, with medium/full body.[3]

Being a little brother of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas AOC is moderately prestigious and can age well when treated with care.[4]
