"A fluid, fleshy and deeply structured wine with dark cherry and blackberry fruit flavors amid sturdy yet supple tannins. Good weight and presence."
91 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"No surprise, the 2015 Gigondas Aux Lieux Dits is the most approachable of the 2015s, as it had already been fined and blended when I sampled it. It was aged 90% in foudres and 10% in terra-cotta. Bright cherries and raspberries carry attractive hints of ground spices in this medium to full-bodied wine. It does still have a bit of chewy tannin to resolve."
"75% Grenache, 13% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah, 2% Cinsault. 100% destemmed. Matured for 18 months in oak foudres. Cask sample. Tasted blind. Rich and opulent on the nose – with lots of immediate delivery and some strong strawberry notes. Masses of pleasure. 16.5/20 points."
