"Long, velvety and intense, the 2017 Gigondas looks to be a worthy successor to fine bottlings in 2015 and 2016. Raspberry and garrigue notes feature prominently in this full-bodied, supple wine that should drink well soon after release."

"What looks to be an outstanding effort, the 2017 Gigondas gives up lots of spice, dried flowers, and cedary notes as well as a core of sweet red fruits, medium to full body, considerable elegance, and no hard edges. In short, it’s a charming, forward, sexy Gigondas that’s going to drink nicely right out of the gate."
