Aurélien Alexandre at Gigondas sur Table July
Maybe the oldest vineyard of Gigondas as the vines are about 120-years-old and
have not been grafted as nearly all European vines after the
phylloxera in the 1860'ties.
The linden at the courtyard is
called The three of liberation as It was planted just after the
French revolution .
A part of the cellars at Tessonnieres is underground. The stones at the grass
are marking the walls. To the right you see the entrance.
