Gabriel Meffre Gigondas Ste.-Catherine 2015

92 points – Wine Spectator

Wine Spectator Tasting Note: This has a solid core of crushed blackberry and black currant fruit flavors, carried by brambly grip and extending through a charcoal- and tobacco-fueled finish. Gutsy, but should settle in easily with cellaring. Drink now thru 2025.From France.—James Molesworth

Gabriel Meffre – One of the region’s top producers whose wines are exported to the U.S. This Gigondas marries beautifully with roasted quail and beef “tournedos” with pepper. Given its richness, it is highly recommended to serve at a cool temperature.
