Natalie's Score: 92/100

Such a consistently well-made wine from the south of France: full-bodied, savoury and delicious! Aromas of cedar, wild black cherry and forest floor. A classic French red wine for hedonists. Polished tannins, excellent length, depth and breadth of flavour. Great replays on the palate. This is a traditional blend of Rhone Valley grapes, including Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Pair with lamb and rosemary.

Food pairings: roasted lamb, veal dishes, grilled pork chops, cheese.

Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A blend of classic Rhone varietals - Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah. Full bodied and a whack of flavor on the palate - kirsch, gaminess, floral, black cherry - all harmoniously tied into a well balanced, elegant and "full of character" wine that is quite quite a bargain at the less than $30 price tag.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A lovely smooth and rich Gigondas showing superb layers of stewed plum, dark chocolate, sweetened tobacco, and winter spice notes. A full-bodied red blend (Syrah-based) with juicy balanced acidity, developed tannins and a long finish. Pair with braised lamb shanks and cornbread. Tasted Sept 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Famille Perrin La Gille (2014) is a medium-bodied, savoury, Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre red wine blend from Gigondas in the Rhône wine region. The wine is black cherry, fresh underbrush with cedar and spice notes on the palate. The 2014 vintage is elegant and is made from mostly estate fruit. - Community Wine Reviews
