Gigondas E. Guigal, Southern Rhone, France, 2018
Grapes: 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, aged for 2 years in oak foudres, of which 50% is new oak.
Purple in colour with an intense nose dominated by peach and apricot with liquorice and notes of undergrowth. Generous, powerful and full-bodied with a long elegant finish. A frank attack, racy with soft tannic structure. Grown on ancient alluvia, red clay and gravel on the slopes with the average age of the vines being 40 years.
"Guigal's 2018 Gigondas boasts floral, garrigue-laced aromas that lend complexity to notes of stone fruit and red raspberries. Full-bodied and concentrated, it's also supple and silky in feel, with a ripe, harmonious feel and a lingering finish. It's a testament to the Guigals' relationships in the appellation that this is one of their most delicious and consistent bottlings."
92/100 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, Feb 2022
Great with red meat, game and cheese.
