Deep, brilliant red. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red/blue fruits, incense and vanilla. A sexy floral nuance builds as the wine opens up. Offers sweet, concentrated raspberry, boysenberry, candied lavender and spicecake flavors that steadily become more lively as the wine stretches out. Displays sharp delineation and emphatic, spicy thrust on an impressively long, floral-dominated finish that's framed by supple, slow-building tannins.
Sourced from vines averaging 45 years in age on limestone and marl soils, this blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah spotlights ripe but pristine mulberry and boysenberry flavors. It's a concentrated wine lifted by a chalky, salty mineral undertow, finishing on fine, supple tannins. Ready now, the wine should drink well through 2028.
Ripe and suave in feel, with a caressing edge to a mix of crushed plum, cassis and cherry preserve flavors as they glide through. Light mineral and black tea notes add range through the finish, which is sneaky long, leaving a mouthwatering feel. Latent depth too, so worth letting this develop in the cellar. Best from 2021 through 2035.
Showing nicely from barrel and now from bottle, the 2018 Gigondas Romane Machotte reveals a medium ruby/translucent color to go with a beautifully Provençal and complex bouquet of wild strawberries, herbes de Provence, cedary spice, and loamy soil. Playing in the medium-bodied, charming, nicely textured style of the vintage, it has loads of charm and is ideal for drinking over the coming 5-7 years.
