2020 E. Guigal Gigondas Rouge
Eye : Purple.
Nose : Intense nose dominated by peach and apricot with liquorice and notes of undergrowth.
Palate : Generous, powerful and full-bodied with a long elegant finish.
Overall : A frank attack, racy with soft tannic structure.
Guigal sources its Gigondas from 15 suppliers, some of whom the house has worked with since before the appellation became a cru in 1971. The 2020 Gigondas continues this line, boasting gently floral aromas and plenty of raspberry fruit. It's full-bodied, lush and already easy to drink, but it seems to have plenty of stuffing to get it through at least a decade.
