Full-bodied, silky & elegant, the 2017 vintage of the Gigognan Chateauneuf du Pape is a must have for all French wine lovers! A relatively young estate for the Southern Rhone, Chateau Gigognan was established in 1996 by husband and wife team Anne and Jacques Callet. While the winery itself is going through a rebirth, the property and vineyards have been in existence since the 17th century. Their monumental 2015 & 2016 vintages were a tough act to follow, but 2017 is stepping up to outclass its younger siblings. The hot dry conditions yielded powerful, structured red wines, and the Chateau Gigognan shows this in spades. A dark brooding hue, with deep aromas of blackberry, and crushed blackcurrant lead to a dense, ripe palate filled with dark fruit and fine oak integration. While Clos de Papes and Beaucastel are fetching $100+, the Chateau Gigognan Chateauneuf du Pape is simply amazing for under $35 plus free shipping!

Wine Enthusiast: 95 Points

"Wafting of garrigue, blackberries and dusty earth, there's so much to appreciate on the nose itself of this inky Grenache blend. Rounded and plush, it's richly packed with plummy black cherry and berry flavors that mesh into fine-grained but gripping tannins. A wine that should reach peak from 2022 to 2037 yet likely hold further still." The Wine Enthusiast, 95 Points
