Guigal Gigondas Rouge 2016
A land with 24 centuries of history behind it, worked and preserved by three generations of winemakers with family values at their core and a commitment to an illustrious terrain that produces prestigious wines. This, in a nutshell, is the Maison Guigal. Right from the beginning the motto, “No Pains No Gains” underpins the promise made to Etienne Guigal. A commitment to work together to follow in his footsteps, to communicate the family’s passion and create so many emotions.
Careful ageing, together with the meticulous attention paid every day by Marcel and Philippe Guigal to the selection and blending processes, bring to the fore the consistency and excellence of the great appellations of the Rhône Valley. Robust and generous, this Gigondas is a 70% Grenache, 20 % Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre blend, and is characterized by its powerful and structured tannins.
Intense nose dominated by peach and apricot with liquorice and notes of earth. It is generous, powerful and full-bodied with an long finish. Racy yet soft tannins. This red brings wonderfully ripe fruit, supple tannins and a long finish.
Red meat, game and cheese.
