Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

95-97 VM / 95 WS / 93+ JD / 93 DE

Deep magenta. Expansive, spice- and mineral-tinged black raspberry, kirsch and boysenberry aromas are complicated by suggestions of incense, lavender and smoky minerals. Alluringly sweet and focused in the mouth, offering densely packed red and blue fruit preserve, floral pastille and exotic spice flavors that smoothly balance weight and finesse. This wine shows superb finishing clarity and mineral lift on the penetrating and impressively long finish, which features polished tannins and resonating fruit, floral and mineral notes.—Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media

Densely packed and incredibly complex, with layers of sappy raspberry, dusty earth, black pepper, olive tapenade and singed rosemary. Shows tannins that are chalky-fine in feel, yet muscular enough to support a core of rich fruit, all grounded by cast iron underpinnings. Needs time to unfurl. Best from 2025 through 2040. 24 cases imported.—Kristen Bieler, Wine Spectator

I loved the 2021 Gigondas Le Poste as well, although it's a touch more reserved and closed. Red and black fruit, tons of spring flowers, violets, and sappy underbrush, medium to full body, and ripe tannins all define this outstanding 2021, which needs 2-4 years of bottle age. As with all the best 2021s, it shines for its fresher, elegant, balanced style. This will drink beautifully from 2026-2036+.-Jeb Dunnuck

Vanilla pod and coffee oak notes to the polished berry fruits. Remarkably ripe in both fruit and tannin for the vintage, with good concentration, but the oak certainly dominates for now, so give this time. Grenache planted on limestone marl. Single vineyard. No destemming. 12 months maturation in French oak barriques: 20% new, 50% one-year-old, 30% two-year-old. Unfiltered.-Matt Walls, Decanter
