Perfect #grenache #garnacha it reminded me of some of the Garnachas I make in Campo de Borja. Super silky rich tannins. More expressive on the palate than on the nose. #gigondas and can I just say that it’s aging excellently. This was a 2012 and it was fresh and juicy and not showing any age or tiredness — 5 months ago
Deep purple hue. Medium-plus tearing. Smoked meat, black cassis, ripe plum, candied blackberries, molasses, bay leaf, wet stone, potting soil, and baking spices on the nose. On the palate, strong acidity, spice, and tannins open up to juicy black fruit, dark chocolate, and espresso notes. Lovely southern Rhône, Grenache-based blend with strong complexity. Long finish. 15% ABV. Vintage 2016. #chateaudesaintcosme #gigondas #southernrhonewines #encoresilvousplaît — 9 months ago
2007 Gigondas from certified bio dynamic winemaker Montirius is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre. From bones planted in 1925 this medium body red shows delivers lots of red fruit, dried herbs, pepper with a dusty earthiness in the mouth. This wine spent no time in oak at all and seems to be at its peak now. Decent bottle at $24.95.
