Lavau Gigondas 2019, Rhône, France
Dry red wine, 75cl. Full bodied 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre blend from Rhône, France. 14.5% ABV.
This classic Gigondas comes from parcels located on terraced slopes, facing directly north, at the foot of the famous Dentelles de Montmirail. Deep on the nose with pronounced spicy aromas (pepper, nutmeg), typical of the appellation and which accentuate the aromas of blackcurrants and raspberry jam. On the palate, the wine shows a solid yet nicely coated structure, volume and superb length.
