Gigondas Maintains Its Tempo (Feb 2020)

Glistening ruby. Highly expressive black raspberry, cassis, incense and spicecake aromas show outstanding clarity and pick up a smoky mineral accent with air. Alluringly sweet and concentrated, offering palate-staining red and dark fruit preserve, exotic spice and floral pastille flavors that are given spine by a core of juicy acidity. Deftly blends richness and finesse and finishes incredibly long and sappy, with steadily building tannins adding shape and closing grip.
