Féraud-Brunel Gigondas 2001

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Made in a modern style, rich and ripe, showing lovely plum, mineral and roasted nuts in a full-bodied package. Ripe tannins, with a real sense of class pushing through on the long finish. Lovely Gigondas. Drink now through 2010.

Dark red. Superripe, high-toned nose shows a strong nut skin note. Fat, round and dry, with a flavor of walnut. Seems quite clenched today and in need of more freshness. The dryness carries through on the back end.

This is a promising négociant enterprise formed by André Brunel of Les Cailloux and Laurence Féraud of Domaine du Pégaü. Given their significant contacts in the southern Rhône Valley, their goal is to purchase fruit from old, established, primarily Grenache vineyards. The 2000 Gigondas is a seductive, voluptuous effort displaying terrific notes of blackberry fruit, chocolate, and kirsch. Medium to full-bodied, pure, and soft, this sexy, opulent Gigondas should be enjoyed over the next decade.
