Winery notes (2011 Vintage)
The vineyards of Gigondas are planted on hillsides at the foot of Mont Ventoux, directly north-east of the town of Orange in the southern Rhône Valley. The grape varieties are similar to Chateauneuf-du-Pape; Grenache (60%), Mourvèdre (30%), and Syrah (10%) predominate. The dry, stony slopes produce substantial wines that are deep in colour, with flavours of ripe summer fruits and savoury herbs. Marcel Guigal selects wines from small domains to produce a blend which is true to the appellation, yet polished, refined, and capable of aging many years. It offers among the best price/quality ratio of the Guigal portfolio. Gigondas is a perfect accompaniment to all hearty fare.
93/100 Wine & Spirits (2011 Vintage)​
"This feels regal and old-fashioned in the best way, a gruff, gravelly Gigondas made charming by its subdued fruit and sweet earthiness. Two years in oak foudres - half of them new - has added a brown-sugar richness to the fruit; any charry notes have been incorporated fully, turning the flavours toward roast meat. Firm and savoury, this is a pleasure to drink now, and it's sure to age well over the next decade."
90/100 Jeb Dunnuck, eRobertParker.com, December 2014 (2011 Vintage)​
"The 2011 Gigondas has lots of kirsch, sweet cherries, spice and cedar wood to go with a medium-bodied, perfumed, Provencal style. It should drink well for a decade or more."
