94 POINTS, James Suckling. "This rich and impeccably balanced Gigondas has everything we look for in the wines of this appellation. What a wide spectrum of aromas with everything from raspberry to candied orange, plus a slew of delicate spicy notes and fresh Mediterranean herbs. I love the interplay of richness, fine tannins and lively acidity on the generous, but not expansive palate. Very long, refined finish." Organic.
94 POINTS, Wine Spectator. "Powerful, with steeped plum and cherry coulis merging with potpourri and charred garrigue on a ripe, lush palate. Packs a wall of iron that provides a ballast for the ripe fruit, while refined tannins build in intensity. Long and complex, with a gorgeous expression of place. Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsault."

Shows firm tension and a spicy cut to its gentle sweet red and dark berry, bitter chocolate and succulent herb flavors. Youthfully gripping tannins lend framework to a long, smoky finish that echoes the spice and floral notes. This is textbook Gigondas, raised in a combination of one-third concrete tanks and two-thirds large oak barrels, 20% of those new."
The powerful and elegant nose offers notes of spices, cherries and cocoa. Perfectly balanced, the mouth reveals a beautiful dense structure with fine tannins and complex aromas of red fruit such as blackcurrants and floral notes. A very sophisticated wine. Organic 97...
This Grenache-Syrah blend will impress with its wild red fruits and spices, plus that authentic dried brush (garrigue) and lavender which is so distinctive to this region. This is easy drinking, food-friendly, and a real crowd-pleaser at a great price!
This is a fantastic and classically rendered southern Rhone blend of mostly Grenache with a little Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault. Dried flowers and wild herbs on the nose. Graceful on the palate where you get more of that dried herb...
