The Gigault Cuvee Viva from the hands of Stephane Derenoncourt has an opulent, sensual bouquet with billowing crushed strawberry and Morello fruit - ostentatious at first although it finds more decorum as it mellow in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a crisp line of acidity. I appreciate the substance here, a big mouthful of Merlot, but there is structure and grip here, with good density on the finish. Afford it 2-3 years in bottle and you will have a delicious Côtes de Blaye.

Fresh, with a racy edge, as a tangy mineral streak enlivens the core of red currant, plum and cherry fruit flavors. Light tobacco and singed vanilla notes score the finish. Shows good purity.
