The 2019 Gigondas Les Racines comes from older vines from slightly lower down on the slope (it's still at altitude) and around the estate. It's slightly more complex, with a meaty, red and black-fruited style balanced by lots of wild garrigue, licorice, olive, and peppery nuances. Rich, structured, and medium to full-bodied, it has serious tannins and is going to need 3-4 years of bottle age but should have 15+ years of prime drinking.
This cuvée is an enormous aromatic and mouth filling extravaganza of cornucopian fruit with infinitely dark, complex depth and deliciousness. There is an exuberance to it, and such energy.
