  • 2016 Gigondas Le Pas de l'Aigle 'Terroir d'Exception', Pierre Amadieu, Cru du Rhône

    Dette er Pierre Amadieu's top-Gigondas, der kommer fra den højest beliggende skråning ved foden af "Ørnepasset", 400 m.o.h. Fornem kombination af frugtdybde, en bred palet af smagsindtryk og rank struktur. Kan matche alt fra kraftige gryderetter og svampe til vildt og vintermad med fedtindhold, hvor syren fra de højtliggende marker giver modspil. Kan udvikle sig i mange år.

    Dark red. The nose gives a lucid aroma of cherry-raspberry fruit, has a coulis style, appealing sweetness, glistens with juvenile brilliance, shows some oak in the background. The palate is the home to most attractive Grenache red fruits, red cherries with a suave style and juicy content. The mid-palate is very well filled, the balance is good, and the purity of the fruit striking û it's crystalline. The oak will require another four years or so to fuse into it. A most winning bottle awaits, full of the clarity of Gigondas.

    A beautiful wine, the flagship 2016 Gigondas Le Pas De l'Aigle is a normal blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah that spent a full two years in oak casks before bottling. Ruby/purple-colored with intense notes of black raspberries, cassis, garrigue, and flowery incense, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a layered, multi-dimensional texture, and building tannins that give plenty of cut and definition on the finish. Taking plenty of time to open up, it's going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and shine for 10-15 years. It's a class act.

    Ripe and vivid, with beautiful flow to the mix of dark plum, fig and blackberry preserve flavors, carried by a swath of licorice root and tobacco. Swirls of black tea and mesquite show on the finish, which reveals well-buried chalky minerality. Should cellar nicely. Best from 2022 through 2035.

    Amadieu's top cuvée, the 2016 Gigondas le Pas de l'Aigle is 90% old-vine Grenache and 10% Syrah planted at 400 meters above sea level (near the top of the appellation). Hints of clove, leather and cedar accent a mix of red and black fruit, including hints of cola. Medium to full-bodied, this concentrated, complex wine should be at its best in another year or two and drink well for the next 4-5 years.

    Lurid ruby-red. Potent, mineral-accented raspberry liqueur and cherry aromas are complemented by suggestions of incense, vanilla and exotic flowers. Velvety in texture and impressively concentrated, offering sweet red berry and cherry preserve flavors that are lifted by a spine of juicy and spicy snap of white pepper. Plush yet energetic in style, finishing on an emphatic floral note, with excellent clarity and harmonious tannins that build slowly.
