Wine AdvocateNow in bottle, the 2016 Gigondas (sometimes referred to as Gigondas 1806) is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah. It's full-bodied and velvety, with concentrated notes of brandied cherries, stone fruit, garrigue and licorice. Complex, rich and long, it's a terrific effort from this standout estate.

Wine EnthusiastPlump and mouthfilling, this blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah offers bold blackberry and boysenberry flavors accented by hints of crushed violet and thyme. It's soft and rounded in constitution but has a glimmer of crushed mineral that lends freshness. Smooth, comforting tannins linger on the finish. Enjoy now-2025.

Wine SpectatorThis ripples with energy, as red currant and raspberry coulis notes stream through, carried by a light chalky spine. Flashes of apple wood, violet and black tea fill in on the ripe and racy finish. Drink now through 2028.
