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.
Tasted out of bottle, the 2019 Gigondas is another gem and reminds me a little of the 2010, only with a touch more accessibility at this stage. Classic crème de cassis, sappy garrigue, pepper, and basil notes give way to a medium to full-bodied, pure, concentrated Gigondas revealing ripe tannins, terrific balance, and a great finish. As with the 2020, the blend is 78% Grenache, 14% Syrah, 6% Cinsault, and 2% Mourvèdre that was destemmed and brought up in old foudre.
Intense balsamic and savory aromas, as well as the black fruit we associate with this appellation. Powerful and well structured with a degree of coolness that was rare in this ripe vintage. Long and complex, savory finish that’s spicy and self-confidently tannic. A blend of 78% grenache, 14% syrah, 6% cinsault and 2% mourvedre from 40-year-old vines. Drink or hold.
