Natalie's Score: 94/100
This is black liquid velvet; so tantalizing to the tongue and senses. Gigondas is my go-to region on a restaurant list. There are 35 acres planted for this wine that produces 50,000 bottles a year. The average age of the vines is 40 years, which imparts incredible depth and complexity of flavour in the wine. The grapes are hand-picked and selected. Bursting with aromas and flavours of fleshy dark fruit, dark spices, dried herbs and garrigue. This wine is unfiltered. Pair with prime rib.
Food pairings: prime rib, hearty meat stews, pork tenderloin.

Tasted June 16th, 2018. Colour dark ruby red. Legs thick. Aromas and flavours of, roasted plum, ripe blackberry, prune, licorice, black tea. Wow, such a complex nose.
Taste dry plus, full bodied, black fruit, spice and powerful. Well structured tannin. Long finish. This was a wonderful wine to drink. Special occasion wine at a reasonable price.
Highly recommend. Next time serve with Prime rib roast and herbs De Provence potatoes with a selection of roast vegetables.
|1806 Domaine Du Grapillon D'or (2015) is produced by Celine and Bernard Chauvet and is a smoky, rich blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah. The nose is fragrant with liquid cherries, blackberries, florals and cracked pepper. The domain has belonged to the Chauvet-family since 1806. Celine Chauvet is the 10 generation and has worked extensively with her father to create incredible Gigondas wines. Since 2012, Celine Chauvet became owner of the domain. - Community Wine Reviews|
