The Gigondas "La Gille" 2019 is a superb red wine from theRhône Valley produced by the famous house Famille Perrin notably owner of the sublime Château de Beaucastel. The parcel is located in the middle of the hillside, facing north-west, and benefits from a fresh air current thanks to the valley which is located west of the village of Gigondas, and is one of the oldest of the appellation. This superb vintage, dominated by Grenache (60%) and Syrah (40%), is made from limestone and marl soils with high proportions of saffron and sand, which give the Grenache a particular elegance and aromatic finesse.
The robe: clear ruby red
The nose: peppery, licorice and violet notes
The palate: silky, a tannic structure supple and delicate with beautiful notes of small black fruits
The years in 9 regularly mark the memory of the winemakers and this one seems to be no exception to the rule. After an early budburst at the beginning of April, the flowering was progressive and took place in good conditions in all the vineyards. Then a hot summer began at the end of June, which the vines resisted valiantly. Finally, the harvest took place as usual, without any particular precocity. The wines are full of promise for a vintage in 9 born, once again, under a lucky star.
The advice of 12Bouteilles: Can be appreciated in its youth as well as in the next 5 to 10 years, to be served chilled around 16°C and to be tasted with a veal chop with morels, or a nice lamb breast.
