I don’t think the 2017 Gigondas will match the 2016, but it’s certainly not far off, showing incredible complexity as well as a sexy, sunny, medium to full-bodied profile. Lots of spice, pine needle, garrigue, and earthy red and blue fruits define the bouquet, and it has classic Gigondas minerality. Give bottles 2-3 years after release and it should keep for 15 years or more.  Barrel Sample: 91-93

91pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Guigal's 2017 Gigondas is a touch crisper and edgier than the 2016, with similar notes of red fruit (pomegranate and raspberries) tinged with garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, it should be ready to drink on release and drink well for up to a decade.  Barrel Sample: (89-91)

  

Winemaker Notes

Pretty purple, with an intense nose dominated by stone fruits, licorice and savory garrigue notes. On the palate the wine is generous and elegant, offering cranberry and cherry notes that are accented by hints of clove and allspice. Overall a direct expression, lovely structure, and good tannins, present but supple. This is a wine we keep coming back to again and again!
