Tasting notes
Gigondas Vieilles Vignes 2016, which comes from pre-phylloxera vineyard of Grenache shows vivid ruby color. It has powerful aromas, full-bodied, textured with very fine tannin. The minerality jumps from the glass and balance the wonderfully vibrant fruit. It’s a beautiful Gigondas that will have two decades of longevity.
