Gorgeous, Floral, Vibrant 93-point Gigondas. $32

Vinous: “palate-staining…deftly blending power and delicacy,”

Over more than two decades of working with Domaine les Goubert their consistency has remained unshakable. In recent years Florence, the thirty-something daughter at the domaine, has taken over the winemaking, and turned an always consistent production into one that truly shines. Josh Raynolds of Vinous called the wines “superb” and considers them “one of the appellation’s most venerable domaines.”

We’ve just restocked (for the 3rd time) on Florence’s 2020 Gigondas, which is among the most exciting cuvées we’ve had from them in recent memory. The nose explodes with a symphony of floral notes, combining vibrant wild cherries, garrigue, blackberry, lavender, and earth. The mouth is long and fresh with excellent persistence.

Raynolds gave 93 points, finding “palate-staining red/blue fruit,” with flavors that “deftly blend power and delicacy,” before an “impressively long, floral- and spice-driven finish.” We think it’s a tremendous value – priced in a range to pull out on weeknight, but impressive enough for a Sunday afternoon meal.
