Dette er en helt klassisk Gigondas fra Domaine du Cayron, der har specialiseret sig i denne type vin alene. Vinen byder på en bouquet af bl.a. trøffel, brændte krydderier og garrigues, mens smagen er kraftig med fokus på koncentreret, fed frugt.
Intenst Krydret i duften. Masser af sorte bær, fennikel og peber i smagen. Vellavet flot vin med en krydret, lang afslutning..
Dark ruby. Potent mineral- and smoke-accented cherry, boysenberry and garrigue scents pick up a sexy incense nuance as the wine opens up. Sweet, seamless and penetrating on the palate, offering intense red and blue fruit, spicecake and lavender pastille flavors and a hint of smoked meat. Concentrated yet light on its feet, playing power off finesse with a smooth hand and finishing impressively long, sweet and youthfully tannic. I'd happily lose this wine in the cellar for a while.
The 2015 Gigondas was slightly closed and backwards on this occasion and was much more expressive when I tasted it at the domaine earlier in the year. Nevertheless, it has a beautiful bouquet of cassis, leafy herbs, basil and exotic flowers as well as medium to full-bodied richness, ripe, sweet tannin and plenty of length.
Not yet bottled, the 2015 Gigondas offers the classic, wild perfume of the estate with notes of basil, leafy herbs, plums, and pepper all soaring from the glass. Like the 2016, it's a ripe, rounded, beautifully concentrated effort that's going to keep for a decade. Unquestionably one of my favorite estate in Gigondas is that of the Faraud sister: Delphine, Cendrine, and Roseline. These aren't for those craving clean, pure fruit-forward profiles and they always have a certainly feral, wild quality (they're certainly easy to spot in a blind tasting) and are old- school all the way. They make a single Gigondas which is always a rough blend of 78% Grenache, 14% Syrah and the rest Cinsault and Mourvèdre, not destemmed, and aged all in very old foudres. I love the wines
