James Suckling, 93 Points 

"Yum. Lovely ripe strawberries, earth, stone and hints of nuts and mushrooms. It’s full-bodied, yet balanced and extremely drinkable." 

Jeb Dunnuck, 90 Points 

"Starting with the 2018 Gigondas, this beautiful, sexy, incredibly Provençal 2018 has a great nose of red plums, blueberries, peppery herbs, and violets. With no hard edges, the vintage’s charming, ready-to-go style, and a good finish, it’s ideal for enjoying over the coming 5-7 years." 

Wine Enthusiast, 90 Points 

"This hunky, ripe blend of Grenache (50%), Syrah (40%) and Mourvèdre (10%) is sourced from limestone and clay soils in the terraced plots of Gigondas. Big and warming with a densely packed core of blackberry flavor and fiery tannins, it's ready now, best alongside a juicy steak, and should hold through 2028." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Deep on the nose with pronounced spicy aromas (pepper, nutmeg), typical of the appellation and which accentuate the aromas of blackcurrants and raspberry jam. On the palate, the wine shows a solid yet nicely coated structure, volume and superb length." 

Alcohol: 14.5%
