Vinous Gigondas Romane Machotte 2018

Deep, brilliant red. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red/blue fruits, incense and vanilla. A sexy floral nuance builds as the wine opens up. Offers sweet, concentrated raspberry, boysenberry, candied lavender and spicecake flavors that steadily become more lively as the wine stretches out. Displays sharp delineation and emphatic spicy thrust on a impressively long, floral-dominated finish that’s framed by supple, slow-building tannins.
