Domaine du Cayron Gigondas 2012
"... Faraud's wines are the richest, most exotic, and often the most dramatic of the appellation. Domaine du Cayron is an old favourite. The 2012 was ripe and fruity, as is generally the case with grenache-based wines. It had almost a liqueur-like quality, interwoven with a savory, herbal, evergreen aroma. On the palate, the wine was earthy and mineral, well balanced with smooth tannins. With time, the herbal complexity grew and expanded. I thought it was lovely.” Eric Asimov, NY Times
"One of my favourite estates in Gigondas, Domaine du Cayron’s 2012 Gigondas doesn’t disappoint… it shows a classic Cayron perfume of basil, wild herbs, sweet dark fruits and mint. Medium-bodied, supple and elegant, it’s already hard to resist but will evolve nicely through 2022.” 91 points. Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate.
