Tasting Notes:

A purple color with violet tints. On the nose, the beautiful ripeness offers everything an array of black fruits (cherries, blackberries) and toasted spices.

On the palate, fine and concentrated tannins are balanced by a nice salinity. Delicious peppery notes complete the long finish.

Swirls of black raspberry ice cream and dark chocolate combine in Vignon's 2019 Gigondas, a blend of 95% Grenache and 5% Mourvèdre from numerous small parcels dotted around the appellation. Matured in a large wooden vat, there's no apparent oak aromas or flavors, just the purity of old-vine fruit, creamy tannins, ample concentration and a bright, vibrant—and long—finish. With its combination of intensity and tension, it should drink well for a decade or more

Last of the 2019s, the 2019 Gigondas offers a more reserved, medium-bodied, elegant style, with pretty notes of savory red and black fruits, peppery herbs, dried flowers, and obvious minerality. Medium-bodied, elegant, finesse-driven, and lengthy on the palate, it’s a beautiful wine that will benefit from a year or so in bottle and drink nicely for a decade.
