About

93

The 2017 Gigondas is terrific, offering a straight-up classic, medium-bodied, concentrated style as well as some stem influence in its sweet red and black fruits, peppery herbs, leather, and garrigue-scented aromas. A blend of 65% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre that was partially destemmed and brought up mostly in foudre (20% in tank), it’s about as classic as they come. Enjoy this beauty any time over the coming 10-15 years.

Product Description:

The Domaine Pesquier Gigondas sports a beautiful ruby colour, dark and deep. This traditionally structured wine reveals itself slowly but steadily, first displaying red fruits and then notes of garrigue followed by cocoa and licorice root. The aromas are rich and layered, the palate is intense and silky, with a big body and finely-knit tannins. It represents the very best of bold, classic southern Rhône red wines.
