The luxury offering, the 2001 Gigondas Valbelle (offered only in the best years), is a blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah aged in equal parts new and 1-year old oak casks. This blockbuster boasts an inky/purple color along with a big, sweet nose of wood smoke, melted licorice, plums, kirsch liqueur, blackberries, and blueberries. The complex aromas are followed by a full-bodied, ripe, textured, impeccably pure, well-balanced wine with elevated tannin, suggesting 2-3 years of cellaring will be beneficial.
