2016 Domaine Brusset Tradition Le Grand Montmirail Gigondas Review



I've said it before and I'll say it again - Gigondas is one of the most under appreciated / under valued appelations (area of wine) in the wine world. Ya know when you find a kickass restaurant that is never really busy but has some amazing food? You wanna tell people so it stays in business but not so many people that you have to wait. That's my relationship with Gigondas.

Gigondas is in the Southern Rhone region of France where some of the best wine for the money can be found. If you disagree you're bad at culture. A fun fact about Gigondas is they don't let any whites attend their party. WHITE WINE THAT IS HARRRRRRR!

In da nostrils I get raspberry jam and fresh strawberries. It's really intense fruit notes make you think it's going to taste like a smoothie but it's Grenache so relax cuz ya livin' ya best life. In da mouf I get butter (both in mouthfeel and taste) and pomegranate. The tannins are present but not overpowering kind of like Bernie voters.

There's no need to go on about this wine or Gigondas. If you don't like it then you need not waste your time on my site because we have very different tastes in wine. And by that I mean you have bad taste in wine.
