Gigondas Tradition, Moulin de la Gardette 2019
80% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah
O, V, Ve
Old, organic bush vines at high altitude and vinified in whole bunches, aged in old foudres. This is an extremely fine and elegant example of Gigondas. Attractive red cherry colour, bramble fruits with menthol and pine on the nose and an amazing palate. Perfectly judged raspberry and blackberry vine fruits, liquorice, leather, violets, nutmeg and cinnamon… lifted by juicy acidity, held together and enhanced by fine tannins. SO pleasurable to drink now but will improve over the years.
