Heiner Lobenberg über:
Gigondas 2016


Lobenberg: Nase nach Steinobst, Lakritz und Pilzen. Im Gaumen intensiv und großzügig mit langem, eleganten Finale. 94+/100


Wine&Spirits über: Gigondas

-- Wine&Spirits: Like all of Guigal’s wines, this was treated to extended aging in house-coopered barrels. The two years it spent in wood seems to have preserved the freshness of the fruit: The flavors are herbal and spicy, with bright tart-cherry flavors deepening to marasca cherry. It feels full and lively, layered and elegant, delicious now and structured to age well over the next five to ten years. 93/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Gigondas

-- Wine Enthusiast: This wine is sourced from vines averaging 40 years old and matured two years in oak (50% new). Gravitas and structure set apart Guigal's 2016 Gigondas from its more zaftig peers. A delicately smoky, peppery blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, it offers blackberry and plum flavors that are ripe yet piercing. It's muscular and sharply edged, marked by brisk acidity and lingering hints of tobacco leaf, earth and clove. Approachable now, the wine should improve through 2030. 93/100


Parker über: Gigondas

-- Parker: The 2016 Gigondas is full-bodied, creamy and rich. It must boast considerable alcohol, as it prompted Philippe Guigal to offer, “When dry extract is high enough, alcohol is not a problem.” Yet I didn’t detect any heat, just wonderfully ripe fruit, supple tannins and a long finish. 92-94/100

Jeb Dunnuck über: Gigondas

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The finest effort I’ve tasted from this estate’s Gigondas, their 2016 is a drop-dead gorgeous wine that competes with the best in the appellation. Loads of framboise, lavender, garrigue, and hints of game emerge from this sweetly fruited, full-bodied, powerful yet elegant Gigondas. It’s beautiful wine and I continue to believe that 2016 is one of the greatest vintages ever (if not the greatest) for the Southern Rhône. You can drink this beauty any time over the coming 15-20 years. 95/100
