James Suckling Gigondas Domaine Grand Romane 2019

At once rich and fleshy, yet fresh and wonderfully dry, this is an excellent Gigondas that already gives so much pleasure, but has many years ahead of it. I love the way the red-fruit, terra-cotta and Mediterranean-herb aromas expand in the glass. Super interplay of fruit, minerality and fine tannins at the long finish. From 50-year-old vines, growing at 400 meters altitude. Drinkable now, but best from 2023.
