Romane Machotte Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2015

Nettles and raspberries on the nose. I wasn’t sure I was going to like this when I sniffed it out of the bottle. A solid wall of red fruit on the front of the palate — bit it’s not syrupy — and it’s just the right intensity to offset any off-notes on the nose. The tannic structure is smooth, but the intensity drops off mid-palate on the way to the back of the mouth. Lots of high notes on the finish. It does a triple backflip on my pallet, and then it leaves me asking “what just happened there on my tongue?” I think this is a lovely wine. — 4 days ago

Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2015

Drank at L’Oustalet, Gigondas (Perrin/Beaucastel restaurant) for lunch, 10/5/19. Then, bought a bottle in Gigondas and drank it in Paradou with my bride of 41 years whom I love. Delish! — 13 days ago

Domaine des Espiers

Cuvée des Blaches Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 1999

Big feral meaty nose on this. Still tannic all over. The cherries are a little underripe but we can watch them ripen from green till we pick them. The perfume is complex and big but the finish not so much. Would love to have had this about 5 years ago, but I’m curious about how it would be in 5 years. Drank while watching Harvey Keitel in Bad Lieutenant. — 18 days ago

La Colline... Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2013

Excellent bottle with assorted cheese to wrap up the week. Lots of berries with subtle tannins and a good finish. Can’t remember where or when I picked this one up but very enjoyable nonetheless. — 11 days ago

Cuvée Tradition Gigondas Grenache 2015

Holy smokes. It’s been a couple of years since I last drank this traditional producer’s wine and while the winemaking style is consistent (non-interventionalist), the 2015 vintage was particularly flattering. From the pop and pour, this was bursting with character. Loads of pure, crunchy red fruit, cracked black pepper, spices, garrigue...intensely spicy actually which I’m sure comes from the fact they don’t ever de-stem. What a lovely wine and it was positively smashing with our meal. Definitely the best I’ve tried from Gour de Chaulé. Bravo!! — 23 days ago
