Dark red. Intense Asian spices accent bright red fruit aromas, with a subtle lavender note emerging with aeration. Silky and precise, with bright red berry flavors, suave tannins and a gentle licorice quality. Finishes sweet and long.

The 2004 Gigondas Cuvee Grande Reserve (75% Grenache and 25% Syrah aged in one-third new oak and two-thirds foudres) possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as a big, smoky, seaweed, Provencal herb, pepper, and black fruit-scented bouquet. It should drink well for 5–6 years.

Ed Draves: March 15, 2007
: March, 2007 5/5 stars

From the hillsides (up to 400 meters!) at the bottom of the Dentelles de Montmirail, facing northwest and overhanging the village of Gigondas, hails this blend of Grenache (60%), Syrah (20%), and Mourvèdre (20%). The nose shows red fruits and spicy aromas, mint and oaky vanilla scents. The flavors of this wine are robust yet smooth, generous, with fine silky tannins combining with licorice and peppery sensations. The finish is long, with hints of smoke and vanilla. Very well balanced, it makes the perfect match to braised beef and potatoes.

Another great Southern Rhone. We were charmed by the aromas of mixed berries, cherry, spice, cola, and a healthy dose of new oak. Luscious texture with plenty of tannin and concentration.
