Critic Notes

No surprise, the 2015 Gigondas Aux Lieux Dits is the most approachable of the 2015s, as it had already been fined and blended when I sampled it. It was aged 90% in foudres and 10% in terra-cotta. Bright cherries and raspberries carry attractive hints of ground spices in this medium to full-bodied wine. It does still have a bit of chewy tannin to resolve. Oct 2017, www.robertparker.com
