Domaine de Piaugier Gigondas 2017
The colour is deep ruby with aromas of dried cherry, raspberry and liquorice which are very expressive and are lifted by a floral note. On the mouth it is concentrated on entry, then continues to open in the mid-palate, with very pronounced black raspberry and floral pastille flavours. Finishes on a spicy note, with good clarity and slow-building tannins.
The 2017 Vintage is a little young at this stage but bursts with the same fruits as the 2016, if you buy now then best to lay down for a year but will be nice to drink now regardless!
Lovely with roasted meats and strong cheeses. Perfect on a wintery evening.
