"An accomplished piece of work." 95 points

Top Gigondas in Decanter Magazine's Panel Tasting from 83 tasted!

Decanter (Jonathan Livingstone-Learmonth): "Swish Gigondas with swashbuckling flair. The nose will give plenty in time; for now there are hints of blue fruit and iodine. Expressive with bright berry fruit and precise tannins. From a small plot high up in the Dentelles, and representing the renaissance of an estate after a change of ownership. Based on 1950s and 1960s Grenache, this is bright and stylish and carries local density on the finish. Drink 2017-2030." 95 points

Decanter (Simon Field MW): "A bold and uncompromising style; tannins and menthol character are both in evidence. Shows dark fruit and savoury power that are held nicely in suspension. An accomplished piece of work. Richly traditional, with a vestigial rawness tempered by the sheer quality of the fruit, along with a sweetly savoury finish -  deliciously contradictory, just delicious in fact. A great match for a plate of game. Drink 2017-2030." 95 points

Decanter (Marcel Orford-Williams): "The vineyards of Gigondas, Vacqueyras and the Beaumes-de-Venise touch one another at this point. This estate's production of Gigondas is small, but the quality here was excellent, and it is well worth seeking out. It boasts a full palate that is both rich and compact. This flow nicely into a long, sweet finish. Drink 2017-2030." 95 points
