    Winemaker's Notes:

    In this kind of vintage, the way the old vines adapt to the weather is stunning. The fruit is focused and crunchy. It expresses well the combination of wild strawberry, blackcurrant, and graphite.

    Blend: 90% Grenache, 10% Syrah

    Critical Acclaim:

    A solid, fleshy and amply toasty style, with coffee and ganache notes out front, backed by a solid core of currant paste and plum cake flavors. A strong charcoal accent takes over on the finish, stitched up by fine acidity. Should settle in with moderate cellaring.

    Wine Spectator

    The amazing 2011 Gigondas Valbelle illustrates what a strong vintage Louis Barruol produced in this more challenging harvest. Deep berry fruit, melted licorice, camphor, white chocolate, boysenberry, blackberry and smoked duck-like characteristics are found in this rich, full-throttle red.
    Range: 90-93+

    The Wine Advocate

    Saturated ruby. High-pitched aromas of red berries, potpourri and smoky minerals, with a subtle note of white pepper building with air. Juicy and precise, offering gently sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that show very good depth. Tangy acidity adds cut and lift to a long, penetrating and gently tannic finish. This wine will be delicious young but it is balanced to age.
    Range: 91-93
