The finest effort I’ve tasted from this estate’s Gigondas, their 2016 is a drop-dead gorgeous wine that competes with the best in the appellation. Loads of framboise, lavender, garrigue, and hints of game emerge from this sweetly fruited, full-bodied, powerful yet elegant Gigondas. It’s beautiful wine and I continue to believe that 2016 is one of the greatest vintages ever (if not the greatest) for the Southern Rhône.
Guigal's 2016 Gigondas offers up a luscious mouthful of pomegranate and raspberry fruit. Sourced from higher elevations within the appellation, it's full-bodied and velvety, but it retains a paradoxical sense of lightness and remains easy to drink, adding hints of garrigue on the finish. (JC)
Deep, glistening red. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet features red berry and cherry preserve and spicecake qualities, along with hints of incense and smoky minerals. Displays a suave blend of richness and energy, offering sweet black raspberry and cherry pie flavors and a touch of candied lavender. The floral note carries strongly through the impressively long finish, which is framed by harmonious tannins that fold effortlessly into the wine's plush red fruit. (JR)
