2021 Gigondas

Domaine de Durban
Discount Eligible $34.00
SOLD OUT

The high-altitude vineyards at the southern end of the appellation, an unheralded sector, gives this Gigondas finesse and high acid purity. From their impeccably tended grapes and gentle winemaking, Durban does here what they do best, keeping the focus and precision of the terroir as well as loads of fruit and pleasure. Another feather in their cap of rouges, for sure.

Sampling wine out of the barrel.

When buying red Burgundy, I think we should remember:

1. Big wines do not age better than light wine.
2. A so-called great vintage at the outset does not guarantee a great vintage for the duration.
3. A so-called off vintage at the outset does not mean the wines do not have a brilliant future ahead of them.
4. Red Burgundy should not taste like Guigal Côte-Rôtie, even if most wine writers wish it would.
5. Don’t follow leaders; watch yer parking meters.
