Drink Rhone Gigondas Romane-Machotte 2016

Dark red robe. The nose gives a good sweep of raspberry-mulberry fruit, has a sweet herbs, savoury aspect, rosemary present. Thee Grenache rules it well, and there is some spicing as well. The palate is stylish, bears free running, smooth content with perky red fruits that finish precisely. This has better definition than many this year, is an airborne wine with a good foundation of nicely compact matter. There is an aromatic, perfumed twist on the spiced close, with a breeze of menthol to keep it on the up. Good, typical Gigondas here, and it will well thanks to its freshness.
