For some unknown reason the Cayron Gigondas was off the Redneck radar. The wine has always been a consistent value. So recently the sales rep mentioned the wine and the Redneck radar lit right up. After not having tasted the wine in a few years, we grabbed some cases, popped a bottle and sure enough the wine was just like I remembered. Bright, fresh, great fruit with nice structure and balance. One of the best Rhone values of the year for sure. “The ultra-traditional wines that the Faraud sisters, Delphine, Roseline and Cendrine, produce at their family’s domaine are among the most classically proportioned, elegant and complex of the appellation. They also age effortlessly, as extensive research has proven to me. A single, unadorned wine is made here, and it is raised exclusively in large concrete vats and old oak foudres. The value that it delivers is truly amazing given its consistently high quality, which places it among the finest wines not just of Gigondas but of France.” -Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media, February 2020 Tim Alberdi Redneck Wine Crew
