Lavau Gigondas 2018

SKU: 3103001773421082 Categories: ,


Deep on the nose with pronounced spicy aromas (pepper, nutmeg), typical of the appellation and which accentuate the aromas of blackcurrants and raspberry jam. On the palate, the wine shows a solid yet nicely coated structure, volume and superb length. This Gigondas can be paired with guinea fowl, coq au vin, a beef stew or casserole, and other prepared dishes, even if spicy or highly seasoned. Blend: 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre Yum. Lovely ripe strawberries, earth, stone and hints of nuts and mushrooms. It’s full-bodied, yet balanced and extremely drinkable. Starting with the 2018 Gigondas, this beautiful, sexy, incredibly Proven al 2018 has a great nose of red plums, blueberries, peppery herbs, and violets. With no hard edges, the vintage’s charming, ready-to-go style, and a good finish, it’s ideal for enjoying over the coming 5-7 years. This hunky, ripe blend of Grenache (50%), Syrah (40%) and Mourv dre (10%) is sourced from limestone and clay soils in the terraced plots of Gigondas. Big and warming with a densely packed core of blackberry flavor and fiery tannins, it’s ready now, best alongside a juicy steak, and should hold through 2028.
