Also seriously impressive, the 2012 Gigondas 1806 is comprised of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah that was aged all in larger, older barrels. It shows the freshness and purity of the vintage nicely with plenty of crisp currant and blackberry fruit, edgy minerality, ground herbs and tinges of leather on the nose. This carries it to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated and yet classically-styled wine that should be reasonably approachable on release, yet evolve gracefully for upward of a decade.
