Châteauneuf-du-Pape lovers heads up! Last year, we said there was a consensus developing about the herculean 2017 Gigondas from Domaine du Cayron. After tasting this wine, John Livingstone-Learmouth, the esteemed author of The Wines of the Northern Rhône, commented that it was undoubtedly the best Gigondas produced in the 2017 vintage. Our Saturday trade tasting group, after tasting this blind, also commented that it may be the best Gigondas we have ever had. Well, the 2019 vintage just dropped, and it is every bit the match of its 2017 sibling. This Grenache and Syrah blend from less than ten miles from Châteauneuf-du-Pape is extraordinary in all capacities. Ripeness is outstanding with kirsch liqueur, framboise, and plums. This is balanced by an exotic floral and spice character like a sultan's potpourri. The tannic structure tightens its profile to keep all this stuffing in check. Just a hint of barnyard balances the fruit and aromatics, filling out the wine's more savory and umami elements. Buy a case and let it sit. You won't regret it.
