Ch. du Trignon Gigondas 2007
Grenache from Gigondas, Rhone, France
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Brillant ruby color. Notes of toast, mocha, "guarrigue" and cloves. A fresh , powerful attack. Full- bodied, complex structure. Delicate oakey finish.
"Nicely rounded, with a solid core of mulled plum, dark currant and fig paste flavors, kept lively by nicely integrated acidity and a long, black tea- and mineral-filled finish. This has weight, but stays stylish."
"Bright ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of black raspberry, garrigue, cola and woodsmoke. Lush and creamy in texture, with deep dark berry preserve flavors and gentle tannins rising on the back half. Very suave, open-knit wine with strong finishing sweetness and lingering spice and herb notes."
