Red Wine /// Grenache Blend // Gigondas / Rhone
Former Parisian fireman-turned-major of Gigondas, Eric Ughetto and his wife produce serious wines with their small estate. Having been organic since 2000 but only certified in the last couple of years, this entry-level cuvee personifies the power and downright aggression that has been achieved in the region in 2016. At 14.9% there is a whack of alcohol, but his plot of Grenache is a little bit higher which results in a fresher acidity. It has powerful but beautifully silky tannins, and an array of herbs and red fruits to compliment the natural sweetness of the grenache, all backed up by a nice bit of pepper. If you like heft with deft, then this is for you. It's like a cultured Chateauneuf-du-Pape. STSWine
