Xavier Vignon Gigondas 2010, Rhône, France


My Rating 87 Points. 
Price $25.

Dark ruby with a purple rim that doesn’t show aging.

Fruity on the nose with cherries, licorice, strawberries, cranberries, pomegranates, forest floor, cloves, vanilla, earth and spices.

Dry on the palate and smooth, yet not as fruity as on the nose, with blackberries, red currants, black cherries, earth, vanilla, cloves and spices.

Full bodied with nice complexity, lots of finesse and great legs.

Medium finish with aggressive tannins.

A Very nice CDR

14.5% alcohol by volume.
