Coming from the sandy, clay soils of the La Louisianne lieu-dit, the 2012 Gigondas Louisiane is made from 80% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre and 5% Syrah and Cinsault that was vinified in concrete tank and aged 12 months in older foudre. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, ripe and textured, it gives up terrific kirsch, blackberry, toasted spice and cured meat-like aromas and flavors. Of the three Gigondas releases, this was my favorite in 2012, but all of these releases are superb. (JD)
Saturated ruby. Assertive aromas of raspberry, cherry-cola and fresh lavender, with Asian spice and smoky mineral accents building with air. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering gently sweet red fruit flavors and a hint of candied flowers. Shows impressive energy and focus on the impressively long finish, which features suave spicecake and floral pastille nuances.
