2016 E. Guigal Gigondas (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1456569 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The finest effort I’ve tasted from this estate’s Gigondas, their 2016 is a drop-dead gorgeous wine that competes with the best in the appellation. Loads of framboise, lavender, garrigue, and hints of game emerge from this sweetly fruited, full-bodied, powerful yet elegant Gigondas. It’s beautiful wine and I continue to believe that 2016 is one of the greatest vintages ever (if not the greatest) for the Southern Rhône. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine is sourced from vines averaging 40 years old and matured two years in oak (50% new). Gravitas and structure set apart Guigal’s 2016 Gigondas from its more zaftig peers. A delicately smoky, peppery blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, it offers blackberry and plum flavors that are ripe yet piercing. It’s muscular and sharply edged, marked by brisk acidity and lingering hints of tobacco leaf, earth and clove. Approachable now, the wine should improve through 2030. (AI) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Guigal's 2016 Gigondas offers up a luscious mouthful of pomegranate and raspberry fruit. Sourced from higher elevations within the appellation, it's full-bodied and velvety, but it retains a paradoxical sense of lightness and remains easy to drink, adding hints of garrigue on the finish. (JC) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep, glistening red. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet features red berry and cherry preserve and spicecake qualities, along with hints of incense and smoky minerals. Displays a suave blend of richness and energy, offering sweet black raspberry and cherry pie flavors and a touch of candied lavender. The floral note carries strongly through the impressively long finish, which is framed by harmonious tannins that fold effortlessly into the wine's plush red fruit. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
