Vivid magenta. Highly perfumed raspberry and cherry preserve aromas are complicated by potpourri and exotic spice nuances and a smoky mineral note builds in the glass. Juicy and appealingly sweet, displaying intense red/blue fruit, spicecake and lavender pastille flavors and supple, seamless texture. Balances richness and vivacity smoothly and finishes extremely long and spicy, with harmonious tannins and a resonating echo of candied flowers.

A bigger, richer wine, the 2018 Gigondas La Louisiane offers medium to full-bodied richness as well as lots of red and black fruits (wild strawberries, raspberries), ground pepper, and violets. A blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, and the balance Syrah and Cinsault, aging in foudre, it has a great mid-palate, ripe tannins, and outstanding length. Due to the mildew, no cuvee Les Souteyrades was produced.
