Deep plum-ruby in colour, this is something of a brooding powerhouse of a wine. There are hints of black and red fruit on the nose with wild herbs, tobacco and wood smoke adding complexity. The palate is robust and muscular, albeit retaining the aromatics presented by the nose, adding citrus notes and pepper. The wine is still evolving, gaining richness from being aged in one-year-old barrels. This 2009 is a powerful Gigondas which warrants some time to fully reveal its undeniable complexity - a very impressive translation of the appellation.
