Chambord poured over crushed strawberries, hot stones, and garrigue. Under pinnings of animal and leather. Very tight, and wound, but that all works out with its fresh character and strong mineral backbone. Raw and angry, just perfect for young Gigondas — 8 days ago
A delightful drink on a warm summers eve under the stars with friends or with a romantic lover. A fantastic color with amazing mouth feel. Some dry fruit and acid notes mix well with a touch of sweetness. Pairs well with many foods, such as exotic cheese and luscious cured meats, or just drink it while cooking dinner and have a wild night to follow. — 17 days ago
We were in Gigondas last fall, and we were amazed that the whole area was dedicated to Grenache blends, like this one. This bottle had almost plum and blackberry flavors, with a hint of lavender. We paired it with truffle pasta at Bistro Moulin — wonderful! — 11 days ago
