Review: 2016 Famille Perrin Gigondas La Gille

Share

This Rhone bottling is “a full bodied red, produced on sandy soils found in just a small part of the appellation. Made with the same passion and savoir-faire as the famed Château de Beaucastel, Gigondas La Gille uses organized and biodynamic approaches, and is a traditional expression of grapes from the Southern Rhône Valley.”

Aggressive notes of chocolate, nutmeg, and gingerbread permeate this wine (80% grenache, 20% syrah), with notes of violets, fresh plums, and some currants evolving in the glass. Highly, highly unusual for anything from the Rhone, the experience is a bit too sweet, though it’s decadently rich and, given enough time to evolve, quite elegant.
