Gigondas, Southern Rhône

Pierre Amadieu

Romane Machotte Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2019

Blend of Grenache and Syrah, deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits with earthy aromas. On the palate flavors of cherry, raspberry and blackberry with slight herb and earthy spices, balanced acidity with an underlying sweet character. Fine tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit and earthy mineral tones. — 16 hours ago

Château Beauchêne

Grande Réserve Côtes du Rhône White Rhone Blend 2020

A new style for me.

Nose: meaty, savory, saline…almost some onions. Bagels. Onion bagels??! Mexican food?!? Wow, the Mexican food images really sticks, now I keep smelling tacos…

Taste: heavy, peachy, grapey, sweet onions and herbs, white flowers, honeysuckle, vanilla…almond, apricot. Long finish. I don’t drink a lot of white wine, so my experience (and vocabulary) are both limited here…and I can’t decide if I love it or hate it- it is funky compared to what I am used to…but very complex, and clearly well made stuff. I’ll go 90!

Domaine Du Terme

Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2019

Tasty spice! There are brambles and warm spice. Eventually, after drinking it for a while, the berries are coming out. And wait- roses too on the nose. Tasty for sure! — 13 days ago

E. Guigal

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2018

The first of 12 and an annual purchase for me. Must be the best value red wine on the planet - $24 AUD per bottle. 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre. I don’t know what the annual production would be but it would have to be well over a million bottles. I love Phillipe Guigals philosophy in that he says the CDR is the most important wine they produce because it is the wine most people will first be introduced to the Estate. Fresh savoury red fruits with raspberry to the fore. Quaffable and smashable. — 10 days ago

Astonishingly, I’ve never had this (that I can remember). Will pick up a bottle on my next run.

I had to Google the annual production of the Guigal CdR Rouge and would you believe for 2018 it was 4,500,000 bottles!!! A phenomenal effort.

Domaine Font Du Vent

Cuvée Tradition Chateauneuf du Pape Red Rhone Blend 2019

Dark cherry in color with a wide reddish rim.

On the nose raspberries, strawberries, cherries, light oak, spices, herbs, earth, dried meats, wild flowers, garrigue, tobacco leaf and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with cherries, black currants, blueberries, light wood, earth, dark coffee, light bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Medium finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very tasty Grenache blend from Southern Rhone. Elegant and interesting.

Tangy and spicy with lots of fruits. Nicely balanced with nice complexity.

This 3-year-old is drinking very nicely now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 5 years.

Easy drinking and better after 90 minutes in the decanter.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.
