Gigondas Romane Machotte 2021

Based on 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah brought up in foudre and used oak, the 2021 Gigondas Romane Machotte has a forward, charming, Provençal style as well as lots of red and black fruits, peppery herb, and saddle leather-like aromas and flavors. It’s medium-bodied, balanced, and thoroughly enjoyable. Drink bottles over the coming 4-6 years.
