Vintages 2018


Score : (91 - 93)

I was told the sample of the 2018 Gigondas represented about 80% of the final blend, so a lot could still change from here to bottling. That said, what I tasted showed intricate notes of garrigue, raspberries and pomegranate, much like previous vintages. Full-bodied and plush, with a long, silky finish, it should be another winner. Joe Czerwinski


Score : 90-92

The 2018 Gigondas offers a more pretty, elegant style as well as medium-bodied richness, polished tannins, lots of spring flowers, and more red and strawberry-like fruits. It’s an elegant, balanced Gigondas that will have 15 years or more of longevity. Jeb Dunnuck
