Gigondas - Domaine Burle - Les Fouilles - Rhone - France
The Somerset Wine Co
The wines of Gigondas are bold and rich and this is a delicious example of that style. The nose is complex and refined with blackberry, blackcurrant, plum and cherry fruit with some peppery spice. The tasty, fleshy and full palate dominated by notes of cherry and blackberry with chocolate and tobacco. It is finely balanced with good weight and acidity. It all feels very harmonious. The finish has flavours of cocoa and smokey notes and fine grain tannins.
Decant for a couple of hours and try this with roast beef.
