2016 Xavier Vignon Gigondas Rouge - 93 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"One of the gems in the lineup from Xavier is the 2016 Gigondas which is made from 85% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre, from a number of terroirs, but mostly from higher elevation, limestone sites. Its deep purple color is followed by terrific notes of ripe blackberries, toasted spice, and dried herbs, with a hint of graphite. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, with brilliant purity and lots of tannins, it’s killer wine to enjoy over the coming decade or more."

wa91"The 2016 Gigondas from Xavier Vignon kicks off with a spicy touch of clove and cracked pepper, then eases into black cherry fruit, a full-bodied, supple mid-palate and a long, creamy finish with just a touch of warmth. Drink it over the next 5-6 years. - Joe Czerwinski"
