Wine AdvocateEven better, the 2012 Gigondas is a smoking effort that-s made from a tank-aged blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. Possessing plenty of dark fruit, spring flowers, crushed rock-like minerality and hints of garrigue and underbrush, it is medium-bodied, fresh and focused, with notable purity of fruit. It should end up being an outstanding wine with over a decade of longevity.
