This is exuberantly fruity, ripe and vividly aromatic full of strawberry and raspberry fruit. The acidity is perky and bright and this has real lift and freshness. So approachable and drinkable - very well balanced with great tannic finesse and no excess. Made with 45-year-old Grenache, with Syrah and Mourvèdre. Grown on clay limestone and marl, handpicked, no destemming, aged in old foudres. Organic. (MW)
The 2018 Gigondas Tradition is the main production of the estate, a blend of 80% Grenache and 10% each Mourvèdre and Syrah, aged in a mix of foudres and demi-muids. It's slightly light in color but perfumed with charming herbal nuances, rose petals, red cherries and orange zest. It's full-bodied and charming, with silky, seductive tannins and a long, pepper-edged finish. (JC)
The 2018 Gigondas Tradition from this estate is a winner, and those who love spicy, more complex, incredibly Provençal wines should snatch this up. Revealing a translucent ruby color as well as an incredibly perfumed nose of kirsch, Provençal herbs, orange blossom, potpourri, and spice, this beauty hits the palate with more medium-bodied richness, a seamless, elegant texture, and a great finish. It shows a sappy, complex, elegant character that’s going to evolve gracefully...
