- Cellar Drink Now - 6 years (2019-2025)
- ABV 14.5%
- Closure: Cork
A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre sourced from vines aged between 15 and 65 years old.
Totally opaque black dark red core with a deep dark red hue. Jumping out of the glass are black raspberry, liquorice and black cherry scents with subtle incense, scorched earth and provincial herb notes also evident. Rich black raspberry, ripe black cherry and liquorice flavours swamp the palate with exemplary power and opulence. Ensuing are earthy incense like characters, infusions of provincial herbs and spicy pepper. Ripe, slightly chewy tannins with a long seductive finish of lush black fruits, earthy incense characters, subtle dried herbs and spicy pepper.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
The finest wine ever from this estate is the 2016 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes, which is 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre that was destemmed and brought up in 30% new barrels. (The Grenache was brought up all in concrete.) It’s an incredibly gorgeous, full-bodied, powerful yet elegant Gigondas that has rocking notes of plums, black raspberries, kirsch, spice, and new saddle leather literally soaring from the glass. With ultra-fine tannins, a silky, seamless texture, no hard edges, and a great, great finish, it’s a wine to buy by the case.
