Gigondas Domaine Grand Romane 2017

I was shocked at the quality of the 2017 Gigondas Domaine Grand Romane. This blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, and 15% Syrah offers impressive notes of black cherries, licorice, white pepper, and earthy garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, and concentrated, this is one gorgeous looking barrel sample.
