    Winemaker's Notes:

    This blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre is a rich crimson color in the glass. It is a generous, robust and full-bodied red wine, with a long elegant finish. Characterized by rich berry and plum fruit, mushroom, and licorice. This Gigondas has the structure and fruit to cellar for the next 10 years. Enjoy with rabbit.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Gigondas is outstanding, and certainly one of the best wines of that vintage. It has softened up considerably, and now that it is in bottle, offers loads of black cherry and raspberry notes intermixed with crushed rock, cedar, fruitcake, and spice. It is a big, medium to full-bodied wine that should continue to drink well for up to another decade.

    The wine is a deep violet color in the glass, edging toward some nice ruby color. This wine can be a bit tightly wound, so you might find it more approachable letting it decant or pouring it through an aerator. I did the latter and still let it breathe a bit in the glass before drinking it. The nose presents some lovely dark fruit aromas of ripe plum, blackberry and cassis, along with some lovely earthy notes of cedar, anise and forest floor. The taste has some nice fruit at the outset, that effortlessly transitions to some lovely black pepper and spice notes midpalate. The tannins are well structured throughout, leading to a smooth, dry finish that is ideal for sipping on the patio on a spring afternoon.

    I would definitely buy it again, but I am also very happy happy with the Cotes du Rhone by Guigal.
