Tour De L'Isle 2006 Proprietary Red Blend France

FRANCE - Tour de L’Isle’s 2006 Gigondas is a distinctive red blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, and Syrah, three of the major grape varieties of France’s renowned Rhône Valley. The small appellation of Gigondas is known for its bold, well-structured red blends and this selection from Tour de L’Isle is a notable accomplishment. Awarded a Gold Medal at the Concours General Agricole in Paris, the 2006 Gigondas is intense ruby red in color while displaying tantalizing aromas of blackberries intensified by notes of spice and black pepper. On the palate, the freshness of the fruit bursts through and finishes with slight notes of liquorish. In spite of its force, you will fall easily under the charm and elegance of this wine. [+]
