A classic Gigondas producer. A blend of 78% Grenache, 14% Syrah, with the rest made up of Cinsault and Mourvèdre. Ruby in color (a bit lighter), mostly clear and bright. Lovely nose with raspberries and bitter cherries. Some herbs come out with air. On the palate, a slight cough syrup quality, but very tasty. The alcohol is a bit noticeable at first but it blows off with some air. Light tannins. Cherry, bitter cherry and raspberries over a bit of alcohol and char. Some herbs and spice mix in as well. Long finish. This should improve over the next few years and drink great for ten to twelve more after that. It will work well with bean dishes or stews in general.
