This blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre is a rich crimson color in the glass. It is a generous, robust and full-bodied red wine, with a long elegant finish. Characterized by rich berry and plum fruit, mushroom, and licorice. This Gigondas has the structure and fruit to cellar for the next 10 years.

Perfumed, with nicely integrated grip that focuses the lovely mulled plum, black currant, licorice snap and black tea notes. The long, silky finish features a lingering hint of iron. Really lovely. Only 9000 cases made. Drink now through 2014.
Wine Advocate - 92-94 points
The best Gigondas from Guigal that I have ever tasted will certainly be the 2007, which is still aging in tank and large wood vats. His general blend here is about 55-60% Grenache, around one-third Mourvedre and the rest Syrah. This remarkable Gigondas is scheduled to be bottled within the next several months. Dense plum/purple, with notes of garrigue, crushed rock, blueberry, and black raspberries, the wine is full-bodied, with stunning purity, a multi-layered texture, and a long finish. It should drink nicely for 10-15+ years. Drink: 2010 - 2025.
