A good wine with black olive and stewed fruit notes. Cooked down blackberry and fresh tobacco. Pretty big but not lush.

Youthful purple color, black fruit aromas, still unevolved, needs time, medium finish, lacks just a bit of depth of flavors, though.

2005. 89. Solid, drinking well. Cherry, currant and pepper. Great nose and finish. Softened over the hour.

Dark fruit, spicy finish , opened up nicely. Once again, Gigondas proves to be best value of Rhone wines
