Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2017

When I lived in Houston in the aughts, I drank a few fragrant Cotes Du Rhônes from this estate, so I was eager to try their Giggie, even though I’ve grown tired of Southern Rhônes as the climate has warmed and Phillipe Cambie seemingly put a spell over the majority of producers. Well, this is a bit better than the typical blocky, heavy wines that seem increasingly prevalent there. It’s densely colored (of course), but the nose has a bit more elegance and nuance than the typical Gigondas estate these days, showing fresh dark berry fruit, really interesting almost chaparral-like garrigue/earth notes, warm stones, and meadowy wildflowers. In the mouth it’s dense, but a little lighter than the new norm thank goodness, with nice savory flavors and decent acids. Tannins are soft. It won’t make me forget Giggies from the early ‘80s, but it’s nice. — 3 months ago

Vacqueyras Red Rhone Blend

Smooth and graceful, especially with some air. Red fruit with some earth. Moderate tannin and medium to medium plus body. Edit: had again and this is good juice. Bright cherry with earth and stone. Almost Pinot noir like but with more of everything. Delightful and great value — 5 months ago
