The classic cuve of the estate, the 2017 Gigondas Cuve 1806 is a blend of 80 Grenache and 20 Syrah that was destemmed and brought up in tank and older barrels. Its not bottled, but nevertheless appears to be one of the finest examples from this estate to date, with beautiful kirsch fruit, notes of garrigue, ground pepper, and earth, medium to full body, and a layered, fleshy, sexy texture. Its a no brainer purchase.

Wine Advocate 93
An 80-20 Grenache-Syrah blend, the 2017 Gigondas boasts blackberry and mulberry fruit. It's dark and intense but already approachable, being full-bodied, supple and graced with soft, gentle tannins. Crisp acids on the finish make a pleasant counterpoint without being jarring, serving to bring focus and length. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.


Wine Spectator 92
Nicely rendered, with a focused core of cassis and bitter cherry fruit, lined with subtle bergamot, garrigue and red tea notes. Reveals a dusting of sandalwood on the finish. Best from 2021 through 2028.

The 2017 Dom. Du Grapillon d'Or Gigondas has a brilliant deep ruby red color with intense aromas of red fruits, pepper, spice and licorice. Its a full bodied and powerful wine, well balanced with a very long finish. Its a rich and elegant wine
This wine is perfect with leg of lamb, beef with wine sauce, roasted pigeon, mushroom omelette, truffle omelette, game and a variety of a cheeses.

Read the description, its true!

"The description listed says it more eloquently than I can. Slightly more tannic than I like but still very quaffable. Paired well with duck confit at Christmas. Lovely berry and bramble finish."
