PIERRE AMADIEU

Gigondas Le Pas de l'Aigle 2016

$45

Ripe and vivid, with beautiful flow to the mix of dark plum, fig and blackberry preserve flavors, carried by a swath of licorice root and tobacco. Swirls of black tea and mesquite show on the finish, which reveals well-buried chalky minerality. Should cellar nicely. Best from 2022 through 2035. 2,635 cases made, 300 cases imported. —James Molesworth
