The downright sexy 2007 Gigondas La Louisiane (80% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre and 5% Syrah) is about as exuberant and perfumed as they come. It offers a smorgasbord of ripe blackberry, garrigue, smoked meats and exotic Provencal spices on the nose. This full-bodied, rich, unctuous and sweetly fruited beauty won't appeal to those looking for lightweight aromas and flavors, but it stays light and graceful on the palate, with still present, yet sweet tannin. It’s a smoking good Gigondas I’d happily drink any day over the coming 4-6 years. (JD)
Bright purple. Sexy aromas of black raspberry and cherry preserves, with suave incense and Asian spice notes adding complexity. Sappy and smooth, showing an array of red and dark berry flavors, with silky tannins adding support. Really alluring wine with strong finishing lift and excellent clarity. (JR)
Ripe and well-layered, with fig, boysenberry and currant paste flavors interwoven with dark licorice and espresso. The rich, velvety finish lets the fig and boysenberry notes take an encore. Drink now through 2014. 75 cases imported. (JM)
