    Winemaker's Notes:

    It was a great classic Gigondas, typical, with the fine bouquet so characteristic; very complex and charming. Its potential is high and we have to be patient. In 2011, Le Claux is probably the big success of the estate. Picked in the last days of the harvest, it already develops richness and freshness. The typical aromas of camphor can be found along with notes of raspberries and peat.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Saturated ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet offers candied red and dark berries, potpourri and Asian spices. Shows pinot noir-like vivacity, with sappy raspberry and boysenberry flavors lifted and sharpened by juicy acidity. Fine-grained tannins give grip to a long, floral-dominated finish. Barruol told me that he thought that this might be the best wine of all his '11s.
    Range: 91-93

    International Wine Cellar

    Striking floral elegance in a savoury bouquet. Stylish, inky fruit and well-judged oak. Has more depth and breadth than many.

    The 2011 Gigondas Le Claux comes from the limestone soils of the Saint-Cosme vineyard. It reveals the most minerality of these wines along with moderate tannin and lots of red and black fruits intertwined with floral and crushed chalk notes. It is the most closed of these single vineyard offerings.
    Range: 89-92+
