The 2020 Domaine du Cayron Gigondas was a Merchant's Pick

96 pt Gigondas • The most overlooked red in the Rhone!

August 21, 2023

Just east of Chateauneuf du Pape is Gigondas, the most overlooked region in the Rhone.  Domaine du Cayron's 2020 Gigondas is the perfect example of this.  

Mostly Grenache with the balance Syrah, this Rhone red offers sensational freshness in a medium-bodied frame.  

You can enjoy it on its own or pair it with a wide variety of grilled cuisine.  When you don't want the oak or tannins of a California Cab yet still want a little body and grip to your red, look no further!

Vibrant cherry, raspberry, and lavender aromas show excellent clarity and a spicy white pepper hint. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, it displays expansive red fruit and spice cake flavors with a subtle touch of candied licorice. Closes sappy and impressively long, with resonating floral and red fruit notes and gentle tannins that build slowly." Vinous 

We love how the wine features Provencal herbs, crushed basil, and bay leaf notes on the mineral finish.  Many Rhone reds are not balanced, pushing too much fruit, which overpowers the nuance of the indigenous Rhone varietals.  

Not Cayron! 

Cayron boasts "a notable sense of freshness" in this "singular and exotic" red.  Jeb Dunnuck

A great alternative to Chateauneufs and a the perfect companion for grilled cuisine of any kind, Cayron is a wine to enjoy by the glass and buy by the case!

Once you try it, you'll understand why this is one of our top picks for the summer.

Enjoy now and over the next decade.
