Expert.png What experts say    
Jancis-Robinson.jpg 16.5/20 "Dark ruby. Quite evolved gamey notes. Sweet, round palate. Some luscious strawberry fruit. Not a strong tannic register. A charming early developer." (previous vintage)    
RP.jpg 88-90/100 "Possibly outstanding, the 2015 Gigondas Grand Vin is a big, rich, mouth-filling effort that has low acidity, a voluptuous, decadent texture and loads of black raspberry, licorice and crushed violets aromas and flavors. It has potential."
Wine-Spectator.jpg 89/100 "Cassis bush, cherry and bramble notes form a juicy core, while anise and black tea hints frame the lively finish." (previous vintage)
Wine-Enthusiast.jpg 92/100 "This is an impressive, well-endowed wine, bursting with superripe cherries, cinnamon and vanilla notes. It's full-bodied, velvety textured and warm, picking up dark chocolate notes on the long, dry finish. It's drinkable now, but worth holding through 2018 for a more savory experience." (previous vintage)
