Gigondas Domaine Grand Romane 2019

I’m not sure the 2019 Gigondas Domaine Grand Romane isn’t the finest vintage I’ve tasted of this cuvée. It’s a darker, richer Gigondas based on 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, and 15% Syrah. Medium to full-bodied, remarkably pure, and beautifully balanced, it has complex notes of damp forest floor, peppery garrigue, and assorted darker berry fruits. It’s a brilliant effort from this team that will keep for 10-15 years.
