So what are you drinking this week?
I’ve started a bottle of this:
Another local french supermarket purchase. Only a year older than the Guigal Gigondas I had a couple of weeks ago but a totally different beast. Much more approachable, still plenty of tannin and structure without being a bit of a thug (read robust) like the Guigal. It’s the same grenache, syrah, mourvedre mix with some added cinsault. Much more fruit forward giving balance to the tannin and a long smooth finish. Really rather lovely!
