"A super-star of the appellation, Vignon's 2009 Gigondas is composed of 70% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah from vines that average 80 years in age. Half of the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks and half in small barrels (one-third new, one-third 1 year old and one-third 2 years old). This sensational wine's dense purple color is accompanied by abundant aromas of blueberries, camphor, white flowers and other black fruits. It exhibits terrific fruit intensity, a vivid minerality, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and superb purity and texture. Enjoy this stunning effort over the next 10-15 years."
