Medium-bodied, nicely concentrated and layered, it has the house purity and texture while staying firmly grounded in the Southern Rhône. - Jeb Dunnuck collapse

Fleshy, broad and seamless, offering juicy red fruit flavors and a hint of candied lavender. Shows very good depth, breadth and power on the clinging finish, with a hint of garrigue coming on late. - Josh Raynolds collapse

While there was no Les Gallimardes in 2012 due to poor yields, the classic 2012 Chateauneuf Du Pape from this terrific estate is another winner.

Lots of sweet red and black fruits, new leather, and bouquet garni notes emerge from the glass, and it’s medium-bodied, has good concentration, and a Provençal, complex, layered style. Drink it over the coming decade. collapse

Wine Spectator, November 2014
A racy-edged version, with briary grip carrying the red currant paste, pomegranate, singed alder and warm tobacco leaf notes. Savory and lavender hints line the finish. Drink now through 2022. 300 cases imported. –JM
