Gigondas Rouge Vieilles Vignes 2017 - Domaine Tourbillon
In the field just south of Gigondas, the old vines grow on the stony red clay for this Gigondas Rouge Vieilles Vignes. The wine contains almost 80% Grenache, a little bit of Cinsault, 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvédre. The wine is a raging reddish purple. In the mouth it tastes of sour roasted ripe and spicy red fruit. The wine is nicely balanced and the freshness has been preserved. Drink at a temperature of 16 degrees and park next to just about any edible piece of firm meat but also with a plate of aubergines au gratin or a nice vegetarian curry.
