Vintages 2014

The Wine Advocate - Dec. 2016

Score : (88 - 90)

The 2014 Gigondas has put on weight since I tasted it last year and reveals a healthy ruby/purple in addition to a terrific perfume of flowers, kirsch, garrigue and even a hint of blue fruits. This pure, ripe and nicely textured Gigondas will drink well on release and keep for a decade. Jeb Dunnuck.
