Dom de la Maurelle, Gigondas, 2010

Rich and spicy with an attractive, but rough, edge. In musical terms, a Victoria Beckham wine.

I last visited this southern Rhone appellation in 2010, a scorching summer as I recall, so no surprise that  this wine, from the same year, is as Hot as Chocolate, Earthier than Kitt, and more tannic than a cup of tea drunk in a tannery…
