Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2016

Difficult to separate the wine from the meal (skillet bone-in ribeye, with everything), but comes across as fruity, lush, but a little one-dimensional. Very much in the direction of what I like, but was hoping for a bit more than just berry and soil. Recall liking before. Reviews indicate that it might have lost a little acid and tannin. Still, good. — 4 months ago

Wanted a Rhône to go with the pork tenderloin in sherry mustard cream sauce. This was perfect. — 7 months ago

Forest fruit, cacao and vanille. Of course very young but amazingly approachable, this is the famous fist in a velvet glove! — 3 months ago

Le Grand Montmirail Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 1999

9.0

Another one from a perfect cellar I just purchased. Cork in perfect shape. Wine is a beautiful example of aged gigondas. Almost Bordeaux like to start then some soil’y Loire quality and now it’s almost barolo like with deep ripe red fruits, iodine and smoked earth. Really lovely. Hit me up for a preview on this cellar. Prices are stupid good as the wines are premium examples of stuff you just can’t find — 6 months ago

1767? I think I see 1999 faintly on the left side of the label.

Terrasses de Montmirail Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2017

Wild flowers and herbs on the nose. Candied red fruits on the palate mixed with a bitterness that is a bit off-putting. Hot alcohol with residual sugar. Medium tannins with a candy finish. Underwhelming at this price.

9.1

Inky ruby. Assertive dark berry and cherry compote scents are complicated by suggestions of candied flowers, spicecake and licorice. Concentrated yet lively on the palate, offering sappy dark fruit and candied violet flavors that fan out slowly on the back half. Shows very good energy, increasing sweetness and steadily building, chewy tannins on the persistent finish. All concrete. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2020)
