Summary:

A beautiful and stylistic Gigondas.

Gigondas is one of the most complex wine regions in France, terroir-wise. Some in the valley are remarkably similar to the princely Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Some have the imposing structure of the Hermitage. A few have the delicate filigree of Burgundy.

Coming from a high-altitude vineyard at the northern tip of the Gigondas AOC. Sandalwood and balsamic notes on the nose, followed by thyme and marjoram. Flavors of red cherry and cool blue fruit rise on the attack, with a delicate web of tannin holding them together. Finish continues with a delicate balance of tarragon and cola. A pretty and delicate wine, despite its weight.
