94-96 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012
(80% grenache and 20% mourvedre, raised in used foudres): Vivid purple. Pungent, heady aromas of black and blue fruits, potpourri and incense, with a strong Indian spice quality gaining strength with air. Palate-staining blackberry and boysenberry flavors show impressive depth, with a zesty mineral providing lift. The finish echoes the spicy note and lingers with excellent tenacity. This very complex Gigondas offers a striking blend of power and vivacity.
