A new luxury cuvée, the 2019 Gigondas Le Regard Loin was blended after a year from the best barrels of the various single-parcels—Les Routes, Roches, Le Plateau, La Colline, and Le Lieu Dit. The proportions will vary from year to year and won't be disclosed, according to proprietor Julien Brechet, who says the wine will age at least another year in sandstone jars prior to bottling. It's truly a blend that is greater than the sum of its parts, delivering a lovely amalgam of mixed berries, garrigue, Campari-like spice and orange zest. Full-bodied, silky, elegant and incredibly long, it's easily one of the best Gigondas I've tasted to date.
A new wine from this estate that's made from a blend of their single vineyards (Lieu Dit, Colline, Plateau, Routes, Roche), the 2019 Gigondas Le Regard Loin reveals a dense purple hue as well as a gorgeous perfume of black raspberries, blueberries, springs flowers, licorice, and herbes de Provence. Rich, full-bodied, and concentrated, it nevertheless stays weightless and elegant, with ripe yet present tannins, flawless balance, and a great finish. This is a brilliant Gigondas in the making. It should be reasonably approachable on release yet evolve for 15-20 years.
