Chateau du Trignon Gigondas 2007
Nicely rounded, with a solid core of mulled plum, dark currant and fig paste flavors, kept lively by nicely integrated acidity and a long, black tea- and mineral-filled finish. This has weight, but stays stylish.
Bright ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of black raspberry, garrigue, cola and woodsmoke. Lush and creamy in texture, with deep dark berry preserve flavors and gentle tannins rising on the back half. Very suave, open-knit wine with strong finishing sweetness and lingering spice and herb notes.
