This is my first post on the Community! I have loved all the different discussions so far. I am sure there is a place on here to discuss this, but I wanted to give a shout out to Grenache as a grape variety. During lockdown I used the time to “discover” new wines and had a few bottles from “Domaine of the Bee” in Roussillon - really special wines. Then a few weeks ago on TWS website I spotted a bottle of 2009 Guigal Gigondas - absolutely spectacular…smooth, smoky and absolutely singing at £20 a bottle.
They say Grenache is the Pinot Noir of the South…I am not sure about that but, in the right hands, it is special. Does anyone else share my enthusiasm?
