“Bright and juicy, with lovely plum, anise, boysenberry and black cherry compote flavors. Racy acidity and a fine chalky spine give this an elegant profile overall, with a silky texture and refinement in the end.” - Wine Spectator

“Virtually all Mourvèdre (there are a few Grenache and Syrah vines mixed in), the 2016 Gigondas Le Plateau was fermented as whole bunches and developed an exotic nose, ranging from hints of flowers and herbs to fraises des bois, cherries, plums and pineapple. It's full-bodied and rich, with a supple mid-palate and firm tannins on the finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.” - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

“Aged in very old demi-muids, this has earthy black cherry aromas. It's aromatically complex, with blueberry, menthol and violet notes too. Fresher and a little less full-bodied than their other single-vineyard cuvées, this has more measured acidity, alcohol and oak for better balance. Lovely ripe tannins coat the mouth, and the finish is long. Drinking Window 2020 - 2030.” - Decanter
