"Impressive with layers, glycerin, extract, and richness is the 2000 Gigondas. Over half of the cuvee achieved 15% natural alcohol. Boasting a deep ruby/purple color, a gorgeous perfume of blackberry and cherry fruit, minerals, and subtle garrigue scents, low acidity, full body, and exceptional purity, the 2000 is the finest wine produced at this estate since 1979 and 1981. It will drink well for 10-15 years. Bravo!"
