Deep, vivid ruby. Hints of musky earth and pungent flowers complement ripe cherry and dark berries aromas. Plush and open-knit, this wine shows good depth and a hint of spiciness to its bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors. The spicy nuance carries through a long, smooth finish that's gently framed by round, even tannins.

Famille Perrin 2019 Gigondas "La Gille" is a rich and complex wine with a deep ruby color. On the nose, it exhibits intense aromas of dark fruits such as blackcurrant, blackberry, and plum, with hints of spice, licorice, and leather. The palate is full-bodied and concentrated, with firm tannins and a lively acidity that gives the wine a beautiful structure and balance. Flavors of black fruit dominate, complemented by notes of tobacco, cedar, and a touch of vanilla. The finish is long and satisfying, leaving a pleasant aftertaste of ripe fruit and spices. This wine is a perfect representation of the classic style of Gigondas, with a modern touch from the Perrin family. It can be enjoyed now, but it also has excellent aging potential.
