    Winemaker's Notes:

    #2 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

    Finally, 2010 is a kind of 2007 with more freshness. This freshness is THE fact of the vintage: it is everywhere, it gives the structure and the relief which generates the finesse. This is the guarantee of a good evolution as well. What I like in a good Gigondas is the body of the grenache combinated with the coolness of our terroir. This wine reminds me of the wines of my father: classical, straightforward, solid and simply so good. Notes of campher, cherry, gingerbread, crushed strawberry, blackberry, pepper.

    Blend: 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 18% Mourvedre, 2% Cinsault

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is jam-packed with dark blackberry, currant and boysenberry fruit, but cuts like a knife, thanks to riveting acidity, a blaze of singed iron and a long, charcoal-studded finish. A lovely lingering note of singed bay leaf adds a mouthwatering echo. Best from 2015 through 2030.

    The 2010 Gigondas (60% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah) is a beautifully rich effort revealing a dense purple color as well as lots of blueberry, black raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with hints of lead pencil shavings, truffles and spring flowers. Full-bodied, opulent and sumptuous, this 2010 should drink well for a decade or more.

    The Wine Advocate

    Saturated ruby. Raspberry, cherry and smoky Indian spices on the highly fragrant nose and on the palate. Densely packed and lively, offering vibrant red berry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of succulent herbs. Gains weight with air and finishes smooth, spicy and long, leaving a floral pastille note behind.
