Potent aromas of ripe dark fruit- purple raspberry, cherry, lavender, some cinnamon, and garrigue. Lighter and brighter on the palate than expected. Finishes sweet with bitter black tannins. Impressive balance and great value.

What an incredible bouquet on the 2016 Gour de Chaulé Gigondas, opening with violet florals and peppery spice, as crushed black raspberry, blueberry, sweet minerals, lavender and smoky minerals fill the senses. It washes across the palate with mineral-tinged black berry and spice, as a mix of minerals and youthful tannin, which perfectly frame the experience emerge along with purple florals which echo throughout. The finish is long, structured and perfectly balanced, resonating on spicy black fruits and violet flowers over a core of juicy acids.  The 2016 Gour de Chaulé Gigondas may be the best rendition of this wine that I’ve ever experienced.

Vivid ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and pit fruits, potpourri and garrigue, and an exotic spice note emerges in the glass. Stains the palate with sweet raspberry, cherry and lavender pastille flavors that steadily put on weight with air. Conveys a suave blend of power and finesse and finishes extremely long and floral, with fine-grained tannins lending discreet grip. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2020)
