I loved the 2015 Gigondas Le Claux from barrel (really loved it), and this beauty doesn’t disappoint from bottle. Checking in as 100% Grenache (100% whole clusters and aged in 20% new barrels) from a site located just across the street from the Hominis Fides vineyard, it offers a heavenly bouquet of blackberries, blueberries, camphor, graphite, and licorice. Sensationally concentrated, rich and opulent, with low acidity, gorgeous purity, and a blockbuster finish, it stays light on its feet and graceful. It’s the greatest vintage of this cuvée to date, and you should buy as much as you can. Jeb Dunnuck

"Dark and dense, with a baker’s chocolate frame around an immense core of crushed plum, warm fig and boysenberry reduction flavors, while the back end brims with roasted apple wood, warm tar and licorice root notes. Will take some time to fully meld." - The Wine Spectator

Showing some little fudge to the strawberry and blackberry fruit. Very soft, juicy, mouthfilling fruit, but also good sense of freshness. Tannins are chewy and muscular, the alcohol a little raised. A powerful wine that takes time to unfurl on the palate into the very long finish. Regal and opulent. - Matt Walls, Decanter

"An expression of 100+ year old vines, this has deep rich blackberry, graphite and dark plum fruits on the nose, and there's a strong sense of integration. The palate has seamless textural appeal and a long, deep and commanding finish. Great wine. Best from 2020." - James Suckling

Brilliant ruby. Heady, mineral-laced red berry liqueur, spicecake and floral pastille aromas are complicated by suggestions of smoky minerals and succulent herbs. Juicy, sharply focused raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show superb concentration and become sweeter with air. The sappy, extremely long finish is framed by supple, slow-building tannins that fold quickly into the plush red fruit. Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media
