Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

"Perfumy and stylish, with rooibos tea, blood orange and cherry aromas and flavors weaving through, infused with sandalwood, anise, bay leaf, sage and pepper notes along the way. A very fine and persistent chalky spine supports it all. Best from 2020 through 2035." - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

"Even better than I remember it from cask, the 2016 Gigondas features hints of mocha and ripe raspberries. Slightly bitter herbal notes balance the sweetness of the fruit and impart a savory edge to this full-bodied, creamy-textured wine. It finishes supple and long, loaded with character and richness." - JC, The Wine Advocate

"Impressive, dark spices, dark fruit, graphite, coal smoke and black, stony minerals. The palate has a superb clarity of tannin, amid incredibly rich, black-fruit flesh. Power and elegance. This is superb. From organically grown grapes." – James Suckling

"The 2016 Gigondas is a classic wine from this estate that shows the house style as well as the quality of the vintage. Blackberries, black cherries, herbes de Provence, ground pepper, and tons of spice all emerge from the glass. It’s deep, medium to full-bodied, moderately tannic, and perfectly balanced. Buy a case and enjoy bottled anytime over the coming 10-15 years or more." - Jeb Dunnuck

"Vivid ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of candied red and blue fruits, incense and peppery spices pick up a hint of potpourri as the wine opens up. Appealingly sweet and seamless on the palate, offering juicy raspberry, boysenberry and lavender pastille flavors and a spicy jolt of white pepper. Shows excellent clarity and mineral lift on the long, smooth finish, which is framed by slow-building tannins." - JR, Vinous Media
