[Quick Offer] Lush, Velvety Gigondas: Cozy and Delicious

“one of the appellation's most venerable domaines," 94 pts - Josh Raynolds, Vinous

The easiest way to describe Domaine les Goubert’s Gigondas “Cuvée Florence” is as a would-be Châteauneuf-du-Pape — same grapes, same ageworthiness, same lush, mouthfilling southern Rhône charm. But it’s fairer to think of it as top notch Gigondas in its own right. Gigondas has long been a source of value in the Southern Rhône Valley, commanding neither the name recognition nor pricetag of its neighbor Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Josh Raynolds of Vinous calls Goubert “one of the appellation’s most venerable domaines,” and today they’re firing on all cylinders. With thirtysomething daughter Florence at the helm, Goubert is turning in one stellar vintage after another.  Their 2019 Cuvée Florence is magnificnet — raynolds gave 94 points, finding “white pepper, incense, espresso,” and “smoke-laced blackberry compote, kirsch and mocha.” We think this wine has a long life ahead of it, but with a decanter and roast of lamb it’s a cozy, delicious match for the fall.
