DOMAINE GRAND ROMANE CUVÉE PRESTIGE VIEILLES VIGNES GIGONDAS 2017 AC
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer PIERRE AMADIEU
Very deep intense purple colour. Fairly intense, spicy, slightly cedary, ripe plum nose with some sandalwood notes. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, harmonious, fairly intense, spicy, dense, ripe plum flavours with a lingering, fairly crisp, slightly cedary, earth-tinged finish. This organic blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre and 15% Syrah has 14% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L06102 on the lower part of the glass bottle. Much better than the 2013 that last appeared in Vintages (**/**+) on September 17, 2016 at $29.95 and was an Explorer Selection. CSPC 968693

TASTING NOTE: A blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre and 15% Syrah aged in a mix of barrels and foudres, the 2017 Gigondas Domaine Grande Romane looks every bit as good as the barrel sample did last year, layering subtle cedar and vanilla shadings over ripe berries and stone fruit. Full-bodied, creamy and lush, the only question will be if it is just too modern and hedonistic for some readers. Drink date: 2019-2028.
