Wine of the Week Sept 22nd Wine Spectator Lavau Gigondas (90 points)


Lavau Gigondas 2012 (90 points, $26)
Features a dark profile, with steeped plum, black licorice and graphite notes framed by Lapsang souchong tea and carrying through the fleshy, well-defined finish. Very solid. Drink now through 2017. 30,000 cases made. From France.—J.M. Lees meer

A step up, the 2012 Gigondas shows a modern, upfront profile with creamy fruit, chocolate and spice to go with medium-bodied richness on the palate. It too is well made, yet has more fruit and depth over the 2011. Drink it over the coming 5-6 years.
