Hmm. Lovely old red frenchie with excellent character. Hint of some herbal, olive-y thing with a bunch of cherry-cola on the deep nose. Flavor is tart, rich and succulent. Has a bunch of summer-y sunshine in there. Mountain fruits and pine needles in the woods. Huckleberries and service berries on a July weekend. It’s an amazing experience to savor and enjoy.

Mainly Grenache with roughly equal parts of Syrah and Cinsault.

I have never been a fan of France's hot 2003 vintage in general. However, last couple of encounters have shaken my prejudice.

This Gigondas definitely drank like it was bathed in a long heatwave for sure with very low acidic structure, soft tannin, and dried stewy red fruit characters. However, it kept me interested with the enticing Southern Rhone unique profile of grilled gamey meat, iodine, green olive, dried mint and damp earth.

This wine will not hold any longer. It's on its last leg but what a journey! 91.
