Cotes du Rhone Reserve Gigondan 2015
70% Grenache - 20% Carignan - 10% Syrah. Hand harvested grapes go to make this rich, classy example of Côtes du Rhône, it’s more like a CdR Villages e.g. Cairanne or Sablet. Great with richer dishes, but also quite versatile. Fresh and soft with a deep garnet colour. A fresh and delicate fragrance contains roses and spices. On the palate, there are black pepper notes with a red berry juiciness that give a soft and lively feel. Moderate tannins.
