A 70/30 split of Grenache and Syrah brought up all in concrete tanks, the 2017 Gigondas gives up a charming, sweetly fruited, yet nicely structured vibe to go with notes of blackberries, smoked earth, graphite, and obvious minerality. I like its balance, and despite some underlying tannic grip, it shows the forward, fleshy style of the vintage nicely.

Deep, bright-hued ruby. Powerful red/blue fruit, floral and garrigue scents show good clarity and take on a spicy nuance as the wine opens up. In a fleshy, open-knit style. Offering sappy black raspberry and blueberry flavors and a sweetening touch of candied licorice. The blue fruit note drives a long, supple finish that's given shape by discreet, velvety tannins.
Very beautiful purple dress. On the nose, aromas of black pepper, candied fruit, fig, cherry. Dense and concentrated on the palate with tight tannins, hints of spices and coffee.
This Gigondas has everything you look for in a classic Southern Rhone wine and rivals some of the great Chateauneuf du Papes it neighbors. Familiar notes on the nose, aromas of black pepper, candied fruit, fig, cherry. Dense and concentrated on the palate with tight tannins, hints of spices and coffee.
This is a tremendous value in the Rhone and will last for years in the cellar. Stock up on this now because we were only able to secure a small amount. Grab it while you can!
