E. Guigal Gigondas 2016 (93 VM)
“Deep red. The fragrant, spice-accented nose offers candied red berries, cherry liqueur, musky earth and lavender notes. Subtly sweet raspberry and cherry flavors show fine clarity; a hint of spicecake builds steadily as the wine opens up. The energetic, persistent finish repeats the red fruit and floral notes. Supple tannins lend shape and gentle grip.” J.R 1/23
E. Guigal Gigondas 2016
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.
