      Tasting Notes
      Domaine du Grapillon d'Or Gigondas 2016, 75cl

      Proprietors Celine and Bernard Chauvet own 37 acres in Gigondas, primarily on clay and limestone soils. Their Gigondas is composed mainly of Grenache with a smaller proportion of Syrah. Grapes are harvested by hand and carefully sorted. After fermentation the wine spends 12 months in old oak barrels. The wine is dense with flavours of concentrated dark fruit.

      This wine is perfect with leg of lamb, beef with wine sauce, roast pigeon, game and cheese. Serve it at a temperature of 18°. The wine will keep for up to 10 years, but will be at its best at between 3 and 6 years of age.

      "Showing better than it did last year during my visit, the first bottling of the 2016 Gigondas was scheduled for July. Like so many of the 2016s from Gigondas, it has that something extra. It pops on the nose, offering pretty cherry and raspberry fruit. Full-bodied and creamy textured, it conceals any alcoholic warmth, offering great texture and length and an almost briny finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. Drink 2019 - 2030.
      92 - 95 points."
      (Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate #238, August 2018)

      "The blockbuster 2016 Gigondas Cuvée 1806 knocks it out of the park with its textbook bouquet of black fruits, peppery herbs, earth, medium to full body, and a great, great finish, it’s in the same ballpark as the stellar 2010 and one of the finest wines from this estate."
      93 - 95 points.
      (Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com, Sept 2018)
