Gigondas Romane Machotte 2022

This excellent Gigondas marries rich forest berry aromas with elegant tannins and an impressive freshness on the full-bodied palate. The chalky character builds at the long, moderately firm finish. Partly from 70-year-old vines, the remainder from 50-year-old vines, all at 350 to 400 meters above sea level. A cuvee of 80% grenache matured in foudres and 20% syrah matured in barriques. Unfiltered. Drinkable now, but best from 2025.
