The Wine Advocate
From a single parcel of old-vine Grenache, the 2018 Gigondas le Claux matured in a mix of new, one- and two-year-old barrels. Full-bodied, rich and expansive, it combines notes of black cherries, roses, black tea and asphalt with vanilla and hints of cigar box. Ripe, supple and velvety, it's a seductive example of Gigondas that should drink well for more than a decade.

From one of Gigondas's top producers, I guess it should be no surprise that this year's lineup is flat-out terrific. The single-parcel wines from 2018 are among the best I've tasted here, managing to combine remarkable intensity with seductive, approachable textures. These are wines that are delicious now, yet appear capable of drinking well for more than a decade. And don't overlook the Côtes du Rhône offerings from proprietor Louis Barruol, which continue to offer outstanding value.
