Wine Critics Notes:

Wine Advocate - Score: 93 (2018 Sep.)

Rich, full-bodied and velvety, the 2016 Gigondas La Colline is marked by its elevated ripeness, but it carries the warmth, plum and chocolate notes well, adding hints of dried spices and fine leather. It stays vibrant and crisp, almost salty and zesty on the long, intense finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Vinous - Score: 95 (2018 Aug.)

Lurid ruby-red. An expansive, highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red fruits, incense, candied flowers and smoky minerals, and a sexy Asian spice nuance builds in the glass. Sweet and penetrating, offering lucid raspberry liqueur, cherry and spicecake flavors that show outstanding depth as well as energy. Refuses to let go of the palate on the subtly tannic finish, which hangs on with superb focus, building sweetness and noteworthy tenacity.
