E. Guigal Gigondas 2018 (91-93 WA) (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.” – J.C.
Guigal’s Gigondas is an incredible introduction to serious Southern Rhône reds, and a show-stopper at the price. In the hands of Guigal, the rich ripe fruit and savory character of the wine bursts with sheer pleasure, yet the wine displays terrific refinement, complexity, length and ability to age.
