Vinous Gigondas Le Pas de L’Aigle 2020 

Deep, brilliant ruby. Intensely fragrant suggestions of ripe red berries, kirsch, exotic spices and candied flowers are accompanied by a vibrant mineral nuance that builds steadily with air. Smooth and seamless in texture, the intense raspberry, cherry-cola, spicecake and lavender flavors convey a deft blend of power and delicacy. Closes smooth, gently tannic and impressively long, leaving sappy red fruit and mineral notes behind.
