A similar blend (60% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre), the 2011 Gigondas has the Grenache aged all in tank and the Syrah in barrel. Outstanding stuff, with deep, rich and layered aromas of black raspberry, blackcurrant, tobacco leaf and sweet spice, this medium to full-bodied effort has solid mid-palate concentration and sweet tannin that frames the finish beautifully. Enjoy it over the coming 6-8 years. RP 90. Drink: 2013 - 2021.
