Lavau Gigondas 2018

SKU: 3103001773421082 Categories: ,

Description

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.
