Wine Critics Notes:

Wine Advocate - Score: 94 (2018 Sep.)

Big, rich and full-bodied, the 2016 Gigondas le Lieu Dit is old-vine Grenache from a sandy part of the property, aged in demi-muids. It's got huge black cherry, berry and plum fruit, yet remains fresh and vibrant, showing a bit of warmth without going over the top. It should drink well for a decade. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Vinous - Score: 93 (2018 Aug.)

Deep brilliant red. Highly perfumed aromas of ripe red berries, exotic spices, garrigue and candied flowers, joined by a smoky mineral nuance that builds steadily in the glass. Smooth and seamless in texture, offering palate-staining raspberry liqueur, spicecake and lavender pastille flavors in a suave marriage of depth and vivacity. Closes sweet, gently tannic and very long, leaving lingering red berry, allspice and floral pastille notes behind.
