2017 Le Clos des Cazaux Gigondas Prestige - 92-94+ PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Not yet bottled, the 2017 Gigondas Prestige is a smaller production cuvée and comes from the oldest vines of the estate (the blend is 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 20% Mourvèdre) and is vinified and aged in French oak. Its deep purple color is followed by a concentrated, medium to full-bodied Gigondas that has complex notes of blackcurrants, cedary herbs, pepper, and crushed mint. It has good acidity, present yet ripe tannins, and a great finish, and is certainly a beautiful Gigondas in the making. Unfortunately, there are only 700 cases made."
