Reminiscing a quick stop at Piauger while staying in Sablet last year. Always enjoyed this producer and we worked with their CDR when I was in retail a lot, but the tasting I had there really opened my eyes to the range of wines the Autran’s are making. This Gigondas is very authentic, soulful, and charming in its typicity and edge of seriousness (muscles). Airs of animal, ground coffee, smoked meat, crushed and dried herbs de Provence, muddled, wild black and red fruits, apricot, chalky minerality. 65 GR 20 MO 15 SY
