Starting off, the 2011 Gigondas is a Grenache dominated blend that’s aged in a combination of concrete tank and French oak. Offering up loads of spice-box, dried cedar plank, tobacco leaf and sweet red fruits, this medium-bodied, rich and nicely textured 2011 has low acidity and sweet tannin. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years.
A classic Gigondas estate, Domaine les Goubert is run by Jean-Pierre Cartier, with assistance by his wife Marie and daughter Florence. The style here utilizes extended aging in concrete and smaller barrels, and while the oak can show in their youth, to me, it is always comes across as a spice-driven quality more than overt oak. In addition, these wines age beautifully.
