DOMAINE DU GOUR DE CHAULE GIGONDAS 2016 750ML

This is a wine of intensity and maximum herb and spice aromatic complexity, yet is not at all aggressively tannic and its pepper element is present in proper proportion.  The wine actually hails from the women’s holding in appellation Vacqueyras vineyard, although mère Aline, being born raised and bred of Gigondas, has never been one to promote the wine of neighboring Vacqueyras, therefore, choosing instead to masquerade the wine as mundane Côtes du Rhône.  Today, Stéphanie shows her respect for her mother’s old-guard traditional style, but clearly lends a degree of elegance to this still lusty sun-splashed red that, for all its intensity, is a slice of the south of France that maintains its balance.
