Goubert Gigondas “Florence” 2015

$52

Jean-Pierre and Mireille Cartier were fans of the Burgundian style, and early in their careers they decided to make a luxury cuvée raised in Burgundy-sized oak barrels. They named it Cuvée Florence for their daughter, and used equal parts Grenache and Syrah from their best locations. Half of the barrels are new oak.

This wine benefits from time in the bottle, and we are pleased to have the 2015 vintage to offer here. Cuvée Florence 2015 is a big wine that even now will benefit from an hour in a carafe before serving. This wine is big, bold, and hard not to like — it’s got more depth than many a Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Vinous gave 92 points, finding “a powerful, exotically perfumed bouquet” and calling it “sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering pliant blueberry and bitter cherry.”
