Wine from Gigondas

Filter 

Gigondas is a wine growing region in the Southern Rhone Valley of France. Beaumes de Venise is located to the South, and Vacqueyras to the West. The typical Mediterranean climate consisting of dry, hot growing season and limestone soil make it ideal for producing Grenache Red Blends. Appellation laws require 80 percent Grenache in both their red and rose wines. Wines produced in Gigondas may have up to 10 percent of any Cotes du Rhone grape variety except for Carignan. Gigondas wine is powerful and concentrated with higher alcohol content, as the minimum requirement of 12.5 percent. Gigondas produces high quality wines at an increased cost, but still a value compared to wine of Chateauneuf du Pape.

Review:

"The Gigondas La Tour Sarrasine always seems to be a winner and the 2017 is no exception. With a big, meaty, peppery nose that has ample cedary spice and sweet red and black fruits, it’s medium to full-bodied, has a wonderful sweetness of fruit, ripe tannins, and terrific balance. It's rock solid and will shine of upwards of a decade. The blend is 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, and 15% Syrah, aged two years in concrete and stainless steel."

Xavier Gigondas 2015

Dark Purple, ripe blackberry and mulberry aromas are complemented by smoky herb, anise and fresh violet. Deep, sweet dark berry liqueur flavours show a smooth texture and a long snappy finish. Lots of ripeness and great balance.

 


Reviews:

Dark red. Expansive, spice-accented black and blue fruit, Indian spice and licorice aromas, lifted by a peppery nuance. Smooth and alluringly sweet, offering sappy black raspberry and floral pastille flavors that gain energy as the wine opens up. In a plush, opulent style; a refreshing jolt of minerality adds cut to the long, gently tannic finish. -Vinous 91 Points
