E. Guigal Gigondas 2015 (90 WS)
“Sleek and open in feel, featuring racy red currant and damson plum coulis flavors, inlaid with sandalwood and rooibos tea hints, with chalky minerality. Not big, but balanced and focused. Drink now through 2026”
Guigal’s Gigondas is an incredible introduction to serious Southern Rhône reds, and a show-stopper at the price. In the hands of Guigal, the rich ripe fruit and savory character of the wine bursts with sheer pleasure, yet the wine displays terrific refinement, complexity, length and ability to age.
