Gigondas Domaine du Cayron 2016 is available to purchase in bond.
Michel Faraud has handed over the running of this domaine to his 3 daughters, Delphine, Sandrine and Rosaline. They produce one of the benchmark wines of the appellation, rich and with a great lifespan. Yields from the 40 year old vines are kept very low – just 30 hl/ha. The wines are unfined and unfiltered, simply resting for a year in large wooden casks. 78% Grenache, 14% Syrah, 6% Cinsualt, 2% Mourvèdre.
“Brilliant ruby-red. Suave, highly perfumed raspberry, cherry preserve, floral pastille and apricot (!) aromas are complemented by hints of garrigue and exotic spices. Palate-staining, alluringly sweet red and blue fruit and spicecake flavors show serious power as well as vivacity thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. The floral quality comes back strong on a extremely long, sappy finish shaped by sneaky, slow-mounting tannins. 93-95 points” Josh Raynolds, vinous.com, April 2018.
