Perrin & Fils Gigondas la Gille 2009
Nicely packed, with tightly wound espresso, graphite and black tea notes still harnessing the core of crushed plum, steeped black currant and charcoal. The long, smoldering finish has racy acidity. Best from 2013 through 2019.Add winemaker's notes
External Reviews for Perrin & Fils Gigondas la Gille
Nicely packed, with tightly wound espresso, graphite and black tea notes still harnessing the core of crushed plum, steeped black currant and charcoal. The long, smoldering finish has racy acidity. Best from 2013 through 2019.
This is earthy and slightly nutty, with a ruddy minerality that gives the red berry fruit a chewy, rugged feel. It’s ready to drink now, especially with offal or game birds.
Vivid ruby. Ripe red fruits and lavender pastille on the highly perfumed nose. Ripe and fleshy on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and suggestions of star anise and white pepper. Shows a suave blend of richness and vivacity and finishes with excellent clarity and lingering florality. I really like this wine’s balance. Note the name change from “Perrin & Fils to “Famille Perrin” that begins with the 2010 vintage.
An odd, menthol note runs through this wine, giving the bright cherry fruit a slightly medicinal edge. It’s slightly creamy in texture, with a hint of chocolate on the warm finish.
The 2009s I tasted from Perrin et Fils include the 2009 Gigondas La Gille, which has lived up to my expectations. This brilliant wine exhibits lots of fat, sumptuous red and black fruit, roasted herb, new saddle leather and licorice characteristics in a full-bodied, supple textured style. The vintage’s lower acidity and higher alcohols offer a dramatic contrast to the precise, higher acid, denser, seemingly cooler climate 2010s. Nevertheless, this is hedonism at its finest, and this cuvee should age well for a decade.
