The Beautifully Perfumed 2009 Piaugier, Gigondas


This is a new selection on the shelves at MacArthurs.  I was excited to try a bottle of this 2009 Gigondas not only because Phil had recommended it but because we really enjoyed the well-priced 2009 La Grange de Piaugier.  This bottle did not disappoint, while it drank well right after opening, its beauty was revealed after one hour.  It really is worth purchasing this wine just for the nose alone.  This is a very elegant Gigondas at a great price so I recommend you drink a few bottles now and cellar the rest.  This bottle from Domaine de Piaugier is imported by DS Trading Company and available for $23 at MacArthurs.

2009 Domaine de Paiguer, Gigondas
This wine is a blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, and Syrah sourced from 40-year-old vines.  The nose is beautifully scented with aromas of orange rind, spices, then floral with a subtly sweet maple note.  In the mouth the flavors are floral with spiced red fruit that is both complex and fresh.  There are supporting coarse tannins, good clean body, and a finish with more floral fruit, a wave of acidity, and drying tannins.  This opened up after one hours then started shutting down after three hours. ***(*) Now-2022.
