E. Guigal Gigondas 2018 French Red Rhone Wine 750 mL

$41.99

Decanter 92 points – Very ripe, very intense nose with intense plum, cassis and blueberry. It’s very rounded, fresh and juicy – well-structured too and very impressive for the vintage. One third Mourvèdre in 2018. Drinking Window 2020 – 2024… Matt Walls — 9/30/19

 

Robert Parker 91 points (91-93) – I was told the sample of the 2018 Gigondas represented about 80% of the final blend, so a lot could still change from here to bottling. That said, what I tasted showed intricate notes of garrigue, raspberries and pomegranate, much like previous vintages. Full-bodied and plush, with a long, silky finish, it should be another winner… Joe Czerwinski — 12/19/19

 

Jeb Dunnuck 90 points (90-92) – The 2018 Gigondas offers a more pretty, elegant style as well as medium-bodied richness, polished tannins, lots of spring flowers, and more red and strawberry-like fruits. It’s an elegant, balanced Gigondas that will have 15 years or more of longevity. — 12/12/19
