Gigondas can contain a variety of different types of grapes, including Grenache, Mourvedre, and Syrah, provided that 80 percent of the grapes used are Grenache, and no other variety of grapes exceeds 10 percent of the total used.
2007 Domaine Du Pourra "La Reserve" is produced at the Domaine du Pourra winery owned by winemaker Jean-Christian Mayordome, who entered the winemaking business following a career as a medical doctor, and still possesses a license to practice medicine. Mayordome purchased the vineyards that are used to grow this wine in 1998, and they occupy 62 acres, that can only be reached using a four wheel drive vehicle due to their altitude between 1000 and 1600 feet. The vines at these vineyards were planted between 1962 and 1970. Following Mayordome's purchase of the vineyard, the winery shifted to using organic winemaking techniques, in line with Mayordome's belief in the importance of organic farming to produce quality wine products.
