    September 15, 2015 - I generally quite enjoy the Cayron wines each vintage, and this one has a pretty typical profile. Loads of lavender, licorice, dried cherry, underbrush, graphite, & an iron streak. I love introducing people to the southern Rhone with this wine, because it has such an attractive profile and one that is quite different compared to most new world wines with the same grape composition. If I’m a bit biased, … so be it.

    September 15, 2015 - Après un peu de vieillissement en cave, ce Gigondas se présente tout de même sous des traits primaires, et il a tenu sa robe rubis profond. Le cassis est clairement en avant au nez, un peu moins d'épices de garrigue que lors de la première fois, l'alcool est bien équilibré, même si c'est plus facile avec des températures d'automne que d'été, acidité moyenne mais le vin tient en bouche, le fruit est frais et pas compoté. Longueur moyenne et assez sapide pour que l'on se resserve.

    March 1, 2014 - Tenendo conto del prezzo pagato, un vino veramente interessante.
    Appena aperto al naso una macchia mediterranea intensa (ginepro).
    Subito un bicchiere e il resto nel decanter.
    In bocca subito, si sente la muscolosità e i tannini mordono con delicatezza le gengive. Ciò nonostante non manca l'eleganza.
    Nel corso delle 2 ore successive, il naso si è un po' spento, mentre il palato è cresciuto: la Salvia in primo piano, poi rosmarino, terra rossa sul mare, bosco mediterraneo.
    Qualcuno mi ha detto che il Grenache è il Cannonau francese. Sono d'accordo ma con minor forza espressiva in questo caso, ma una maggiore eleganza.
    L'avanzo in decanter al secondo giorno, tiene il passo. I tannini si sono di molto ammorbiditi, ma la forza propulsiva si è persa per strada.
    Vedo che la mia enoteca ha il 2010. Lo prenderò sicuramente.
