E. Guigal Gigondas 2017 (92 VM)
“Vivid ruby-red. The bouquet showcases ripe cherry, black raspberry and vanilla aromas, along with floral, woodsmoke and cracked pepper flourishes. It is broad and juicy in the mouth and offers well-concentrated red and blue fruit flavors with olive and licorice hints. The floral and spice notes repeat on a long, smoky finish that’s given shape by round, well-judged tannins. Raised in large oak barrels, half of them new.”- J.R 1/23
E. Guigal Gigondas 2017
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.
