Héritages Gigondas is a red wine from Ogier of the Héritages family and comes from the growing area of Gigondas to the same place in the Rhone Valley. The ruby red wine presents itself in the nose elegant and complex with aromas of fruit and kirsch. The first impression is rounded off by hints of undergrowth and menthol notes. Very round and full-bodied with great elegance and freshness on the palate. The fruity and long finish with a touch of vanilla makes you want to sip again. Already excellent, the wine has development potential for the next few years. Héritage's Gigondas is perfect as a companion to savory dishes but also as a solo treat.

A really good collection of wine here. If you like Cote de Rhone I do find this collection has a bit more body than lower priced C.d.Rs, but still easy drinking. I would definitely buy again.
