(92-94 points) The base Gigondas, the 2018 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes is a blend from both the La Louisiane and Pigière lieux-dits near the estate (due to the dismal yields, there’s no Souteyrade cuvée in 2018) and is 80%...   (92-94 points) The base Gigondas, the 2018 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes is a blend from both the La Louisiane and Pigière lieux-dits near the estate (due to the dismal yields, there’s no Souteyrade cuvée in 2018) and is 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah brought up in foudre. It has a wonderful flowery incense and blue fruit quality as well as medium to full body, a ripe, rounded mid-palate, and a great texture. It’s a more forward, charming, sexy wine that’s going to drink nicely in its youth yet also evolve gracefully.

Expansive aromas of ripe red/blue fruits, potpourri and licorice are complemented by bright mineral and exotic spice nuances that emerge with air. Juicy, penetrating raspberry, bitter cherry and candied violet flavors become sweeter with aeration and show a surprisingly delicate touch. Velvety tannins lend subtle grip to an impressively long, spice-laced finish that emphatically echoes the red fruit and floral notes. -- Josh Raynolds

Smashed blueberries and raspberries, really vivid. Full-bodied, very rounded and flamboyant with a dense tannic mesh. This is juicy, not terribly long but certainly makes an impression. Organic. Long maceration (7 weeks)...   Smashed blueberries and raspberries, really vivid. Full-bodied, very rounded and flamboyant with a dense tannic mesh. This is juicy, not terribly long but certainly makes an impression. Organic. Long maceration (7 weeks), then matured in foudre for 12 months.
