The wine shows pleasant, shiny cherry and purple colours.
Aromas of ginger bread, cloves and cinnamon complete the odour of fresh strawberries and raspberries, whereas a hint of smoke reveals the ripening of the wine in oak barrels.
The mouth is elegant and smooth, carried by a straight acidity, fine tannins and the fullness and power one might expect from a genuine Gigondas.
A real piece of jewellery representing the delicacy of this vintage, a pleasure to be served now or worth to be kept several years in your cellar.
