Critic Notes

Moving to the Gigondas releases, the 2012 Gigondas Terre Des Aines gives up lots of crushed rock, wild herbs and underbrush to go with a core of dark fruit. Made from 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre, enjoy this medium-bodied, elegant and nicely balanced Gigondas over the coming 7-8 years. Jan 2015, www.robertparker.com
