The Wine Advocate Gigondas Le Pas de l’Aigle 2018

Mainly (90%) 65-year-old Grenache grown at 400 meters above sea level on blue clay, Amadieu’s 2018 Gigondas le Pas de l’Aigle looks to be another top success. Still in barrel (where it stays for two years), it’s full-bodied, supple and rich, with bold raspberry and cherry fruit, a velvety mouthfeel and a long, rich finish marked by ripe tannins.
