#78 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010
The color is a deep ruby with a velvety aspect. The nose is reminiscent of red fruit jams, with a mineral and earthy touch. A generous and powerful wine that is robust and distinguished, with its firm tannins well integrated.
Loaded, with crushed plum, blackberry and fig fruit backed by muscular espresso, black licorice and tar notes. Grippy but polished, with a long, spice- and black fruit-filled finish. Best from 2011 through 2016.
The 2007 Gigondas Le Gille is performing even better than it was last year. A 2,500-case blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah grown in sandy soils, it exhibits sweet tannins, beautifully rich black raspberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with unmistakable minerality, and full body. It was obviously harvested at full phenolic maturity, and should age nicely for 10-15+ years.
Vivid red. Fresh red berry and cherry aromas complicated by anise and white pepper. Zesty redcurrant and cherry flavors are braced by firm minerality and framed by silky tannins. Gains sweetness on the pure, focused finish. Range: 88-91
