Domaine La Roubine Gigondas 2010, Rhone Valley, France

 

Roubine Gigondas 2010 Rhone Valley France Simple Palates Seriously

Another delicious Rhone wine from the solid 2010 vintage. The Domaine la Roubine Gigondas 2010 is a blend of 65% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre, 10% Cinsault and 10% Syrah. Dark ruby purple colour, youthful floral nose with aromas of blackberry jam, stewed plum, sweet spice and earthy oak staves. Still young, this medium+ bodied wine has fruity acidity, and a moderate level of chewey tannins. Ripe joocey blackberry, mulberry and red plum flavours. Nice clean finish. Drink now – 2020. 90/100. This would be nice with some char-grilled chicken with a beetroot and fetta salad.

I got a couple on the cheap off Langton’s but you can find these for $50 from PWS.

For an exploration of the region, check out the Roubine Vacqueyras 2010 which retails for $40.
