    March 23, 2017 - Medium to dark ruby, big garrigue nose followed by black cherry, passion fruit, cherry, red currant and hops, warm and round fruit on the attack followed by red earthy fruit, pepper and sneaky acidity, finish is a little off with hints of bell pepper, powdery red fruit and strange burnt rubber flavors

    Note: One of my favorite Gigondas producers, could just be an off bottle

    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.
