Gigondas wines are recognized for their power, raw edge, and sauvage, as the French would say, which means savage or wild. The region is in the Southern Rhone Valley, East of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and the wines are predominantly Grenache-based. Chateau Redortier’s 2015 is, as The Wine Advocate writes, “A top-notch effort.” What makes it extra special is, as noted by Vinous, the wine is “surprisingly graceful,” and combined with the wild nature of Gigondas, it is truly something to behold.

Chateau Redortier’s 2015 release combines 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah, and the grapes come from a hillside vineyard where the iron-rich clay-limestone soils produce remarkable fruit, with precise clarity.

2015 was one of the area’s best vintages, and the Wine Spectator notes, “Grenache and Mourvèdre excelled; reds are rich, ripe and full of powerful fruit.”, and they scored the overall vintage 97 points. If you’re looking for a classic Gigondas with a touch of elegance, this is it.

2015 CHÂTEAU REDORTIER GIGONDAS 

 “A top-notch effort, Redortier’s 2015 Gigondas should drink well for up to a decade or more. Seductive notes of raspberries and cracked pepper mark the nose, while the full-bodied palate is rich and creamy without being overly fat or weighty. The overall balance and texture is special, wrapping up with a long, supple finish.”
93 Points
“…Its deep, inky color is followed by fabulous notes of black raspberries, cassis, underbrush, garrigue and scorched earth. Full-bodied, ripe, voluptuous and loaded with sweet tannin, this classic beauty has everything you could want from the vintage. It’s going to drink nicely for a decade, and keep even longer.”
93 Points
“Bright ruby. Intensely perfumed aromas of red and dark berries, sandalwood and lavender show excellent focus. Stains the palate with appealingly sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that become deeper and spread out slowly with air. Delivers a solid punch but comes off surprisingly graceful, closing with impressive, spicy persistence and sneaky tannins.”
91-93 Points
 “… Bright crimson. High-toned and polished, sinewy stuff on the nose. Thick and ripe. Masses of density saved from being heavy by acidity. Fine tannins. Lots of work here – to good effect, even if it is a relatively sophisticated riff on Gigondas.” 17/20
