Today, Gigondas is a dark, almost black-red wine, powerful and earthy but with a great depth of raspberry fruit. As it evolves over time, it takes on a nose of pitted fruits, spices and licorice. On the palate, it retains its robust flavor but becomes more balanced.
Intensely ripe black-cherry and mulberry aromas are muted by shades of forest floor, porcini and dried violet in this full-bodied wine. The black fruit flavors are lavishly fruity but balanced by complexities of earth, leather and charcuterie.
