Jeb Dunnuck Gigondas Le Pas de l’Aigle 2020

The flagship 2020 Gigondas Le Pas De L’Aigle is almost exclusively Grenache (there’s 10% Syrah) that sees a longer élevage in foudre. Clean red and black fruits, spice, loamy soil, and leather notes all comprise the bouquet, and it’s medium to full-bodied, with a balanced, elegant mouthfeel and a great finish. It’s unquestionably a beautiful wine in the making, and with its longer élevage, it normally has plenty of up-front charm as well.
