The 2018 Gigondas Cuvée 1806 is a more front end loaded Gigondas that has beautiful kirsch and black raspberry fruits as well as complex notes of spring flowers, forest floor, and candied oranges. With medium to full-bodied richness, a supple, soft texture, a good dose of ripe tannins, and a great finish, this Provençal, charming, undeniably delicious Gigondas is ideal for enjoying over the coming 8-10 years. This cuvée is 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah that was destemmed and aged in old barrels and tank, bottled unfined and unfiltered.
