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.
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.
