Description

Brilliant ruby. High-toned aromas of red/blue fruit preserves and candied flowers, along with a bright, spicy topnote. Shows sharp focus and lift to juicy black raspberry, boysenberry and lavender pastille flavors, which slowly spread out on the back half. Finishes smoky, subtly sweet and impressively long, with mounting tannins and a whiplash of sweet blue fruit.

Score: 93-94 points -- Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 2020

Christophe Ay and his sister Anne-Sophie represent the seventh generation at this venerable family-run estate. Owners of 19 hectares in Gigondas, they produce only Gigondas, and only a single cuvée each year. Plantings are 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, all on the plain in front of the village, not on any of the high-elevation sites in the Dentelles. The grapes are all destemmed, then fermented in vats using indigenous yeasts before élevage in old foudres for at least two years. Christophe points out that the mildew attack in May-June 2018 left small yields of only 15-16 hectoliters per hectare, but the resulting wines have good acidity and long aging potential. He compares it to 2015 or 2007 (both excellent vintages at this address).
