Gigondas Reviews

Score: 92 | August 31, 2018 | Wine Advocate

As I predicted last year, Louis Bernard's 2016 Gigondas has turned out well and will undoubtedly be an excellent value once pricing is released (the 2014 is the latest vintage available in the United States at the time of this writing). Hints of garrigue accent ripe cherry and stone fruit aromas, while the full-bodied palate is creamy and supple in texture. It's already so drinkable, so sexy, that I question its ability to age, so enjoy it over the next 6-7 years.

The 2016 Gigondas looks to be a no-brainer, and it offers outstanding aromas and flavors of cassis, peppery spice, and camphor, with a ripe, polished, fruit forward style. This total crowd pleaser has lots of fruit, as well as sweet tannin, and should drink nicely right out of the gate.
