Gigondas Romane Machotte 2016

The 2016 Gigondas Romane Machotte is an 80/20 split of Grenache and Syrah that spent 12 months in casks and barrels. It’s slightly more elegant and lightly textured, with pretty red and black fruits, ground pepper, and some sappy flower aromas and flavors. With medium-bodied richness, fine tannin, and good acidity, drink it over the coming 5-6 years.
