Wine Advocate Gigondas Domaine Grand Romane 2018

Always among the top wines at this address, the 2018 Gigondas Domaine Grand Romane delivers once again. Hedonistic waves of vanilla and ripe cherries greet the nose, while the full-bodied palate is expansive yet structured, framed by softly dusty tannins that turn silkier on the long finish. While decidedly modern in style, it looks to have the inherent substance and balance to drink well for up to a decade.
