E. Guigal Gigondas Red 2015
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
|Region||France, Rhone, Gigondas|
Pert black-cherry and blackberry flavors are anchored by an invigorating granite backbone in this bold but elegant red. It's lush and silky in mouthfeel, augmented by feathery tannins and sunny acidity, but maintains a vitality and earthen complexity that should hold well through 2025.
The 2015 Gigondas is remarkable for its elegance. Sourced largely from higher-altitude vineyards, it's evolved in a red-fruited direction, offering cranberry and cherry notes accented by hints of clove and allspice. Medium to full-bodied, with a creamy mid-palate and silky tannins on the finish, it drinks well now and should continue to do so for at least another 6-7 years. Drink 2018-2025
Sleek and open in feel, featuring racy red currant and damson plum coulis flavors, inlaid with sandalwood and rooibos tea hints, with chalky minerality. Not big, but balanced and focused. Drink now through 2026. 10,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
