The 2007 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes, a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre from 40-year-old vines, boasts a saturated ruby/purple color as well as an exquisite bouquet of incense, crushed rocks, charcoal, black raspberries, kirsch, and blackberries, an incredibly broad, savory mouthfeel, stunning density, and a finish that goes on for 40+ seconds. This remarkable offering is one of the most prodigious wines I have ever tasted from Gigondas. It should drink well for two decades or more.
