Domaine de Fontavin Gigondas Cuvee Combe Sauvage 2016

SKU 08528


It's a great wine, solid mass an rustic. The mouth is lively, energic with tannins allowing texture of remarkable density. The fragrant 'guarrigue' and spicy notes complete the harmony. This peppery wine with robust tannins can be cellared between seven and ten years.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Gigondas Cuvee Combe Sauvage rivals some of the domaine's bottlings from Châteauneuf du Pape, offering subtle black cherry and plum fruit, a full-bodied, richly concentrated and velvety-textured palate and complex hints of cola, spice and mocha on the lingering finish. It's immediately approachable, but it should still age well for at least a decade. Drink Date: 2018-2030.
