Le Pigeoulet Vaucluse Red Rhone Blend 2014

Of course! Pours a clear, slightly hazy purplish-ruby in the glass, with medium viscosity and pale concentration, moving to a silvery rim. Light extraction, light viscosity, no evidence of gas or sediment. This wine is clean, with a delicate nose of gardenias, wet stone, wild herbs, and barnyard. There's an unripe cherry characteristic with a hint of plum peel, abundant herbal notes and just the right amount of gaminess on the nose. A little bit of old French oak from Foudres. Off dry on the palate with medium tannins and medium acidity, light to medium body with medium alcohol. Dried strawberry and spicy cherry on the palate, tons of wild, garlicky herbs, white pepper, perfume, and a long mushroomy, earthy finish. Hints of chalky limestone and old oak as the finish tails off. Moderate complexity, good for the price range. Opens up nicely in the glass, with fruit growing more abundant and the nose growing more herbal with time. — 6 years ago
