2013 Gigondas Romane Machotte 90-92 points
Vivid ruby. Powerful cherry and blackberry scents are complemented by vanilla and liquorice, with a note of peppery spices emerging with aeration. Shows very good energy and focus on the palate, offering appealingly sweet red and dark berry flavors and a flourish of liquorice pastille. Finishes supple and long, with very good power, round tannins and resonating spiciness.
2013 Gigondas Romane Machotte 17.5 / 20
Mid ruby. Dense, quite tense and with real interest and depth. Definitely dry on the end but not drying. Lots of substance and a lot other than just simple Grenache. Extremely appetising.
2013 Gigondas Romane Machotte 86-88 points
An exotic, perfumed and savory Gigondas, the 2013 Gigondas Romane Machotte (80% Grenache and 20% Syrah) offers notes of black raspberry, dried flowers, menthol and dried spices. Medium-bodied, supple, pure and elegant on the palate, it has a forward feel in its texture and tannin profile, all suggesting it’s best consumed in its first 6-8 years of life.
