Crous St. Martin Gigondas Les Espaliers 2016
|Region||France, Rhone, Gigondas|
|Brand||Crous St. Martin|
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Gigondas les Espaliers features scents of mocha, black cherries and stone fruit. It's full-bodied and supple yet not heavy or overdone. There's plenty of stuffing here, with a sense of freshness on the finish. It should drink well for a decade or so.
Wine EnthusiastLush dried berry and black cherry flavors are muted by darker tones of dried earth, bramble and thyme in this Grenache-dominant blend. It's pristinely fruity and plump, but savory and structured, too. The finish is extended by fine, persistent tannins. Enjoyable now but should develop complexity through 2028.
