Big. Chunky. Blackcurrant. Cassis fruit leaps out of the glass. The palate provides suave content and plenty of black berry juice, its tannins just discernible. This is a flashy, eye catching Gigondas with the kick in the tannins. As with many top quality Rhones these days this is on the shelf a tad early. It is drinking well now but if you can hold off for a couple of years this should age beautifully.
