Day 53 – Kirkcaldy

E. Guigal Gigondas 2015.

Bought during a supermarket wine fair in France for 15€ in September 2019. Very decent and very Grenache-y, and definitely tastes like a Gigondas. But slightly – what’s a good word for it? Generic, perhaps. Not in the same class as Brunier’s Les Pallières or Saint Cosme – but then, of course, not in the same price bracket either. I guess this will be a négociant wine. I had a bottle around eighteen months ago, which was rather muted. This one is far more expressive, and I would imagine at its peak about now. Still four left, and I don’t think they should stay in the cellar for more than another 2-3 years. Very pleasant, but not really memorable.
