Pierre Amadieu Romane-Machotte Gigondas 1981 Rhône, France

Light ruby in color with medium intensity and some cloudiness.

Nice nose of blueberries, cherries, currants, oak, spices, earth, wet leaves, herbs, peppercorn, pencil lead, dark coffee and light vegetables.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with black currants, cherries, strawberries, wood, wet leaves, herbs, forest floor, vegetables and peppercorn.

Medium plus in length on the finish with no tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice expression of a piece of history from Southern France. This 39 year old is still showing nice fruits with nice complexity and mouthfeel. Tasty and engaging.

Good right out of the bottle, and started dying after an hour of airtime.

Very enjoyable, even by itself, and better than I expected. Another great experience.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

13% alcohol by volume.

89 points.
