The Wine Advocate Gigondas Romane-Machotte 2016

Even Amadieu’s entry-level 2016 Gigondas Romane Machotte is looking good. This Grenache and Syrah blend, aged in a combination of foudres and used barriques, is less concentrated than the other bottlings, but it’s still ripe, supple and harmonious, blending hints of dried herbs with ripe cherries and stone fruit.
