From: Rhone Valley, France
Varietal: 58% Grenache, 38% Syrah, 4% Mourvedre
Nestled at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail mountain, Gigondas produces some marvelous wines. The grapes for this wine grew on steep terraces up to 1300 feet in altitude.
Tasting Notes: The complex bouquet of black and red fruit also reveals subtle spicy aromas. The wine starts out quite full-bodied, going on to show velvety tannin that gives the wine an expression of great smoothness. Beautiful fresh long aftertaste.
"The 2019 Gigondas Les Pierres Du Vallat is more modern styled and has some subtle background oak as well as notes of blue fruits, peppery herbs, and violets. Medium-bodied on the palate, it’s wonderfully textured and has silky tannins and a great finish." –Jeb Dunnuck, 91 points
"Deep, brilliant violet. Expansive dark berry, violet and licorice scents show very good clarity and pick up a smoky quality with aeration. Palate-coating blackberry, cherry preserve and floral pastille flavors are energized by zesty spice and mineral qualities that build slowly on the back half. At once rich and energetic, with a long, juicy finish that's framed by supple, harmonious tannins." –Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 91-92 points
Pairing: Ideal with pork, braised meats, vegetables, roasts, and dark chocolate cake.
