Blackberry, blueberry, herbal notes, spice and those garrigue notes coming from the Grenache (although not as strong). This wine is packed with flavour. Dense is a great word to describe it. Fruit and soft tannins are integrated beautifully. E. Guigal is a reliable producer and this Gigondas is one such example.

Couldn't disagree more with the respected critics on this one. Elegant nose of jammy fruits and a hint of spice, but this wine ends there. At 14.5% alcohol I found this to be suprisingly light in weight without the umph of many côte du Rhones retailing at half the price. Very dry with weak tannins and a finish that drops off almost immediately. This was the third bottle I tasted and all disappointed especially at this price point for the region.

Alright, but for the money I would expect more.
