Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93

($80) Bright ruby. Spicy aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet and candied rose. Dense and wonderfully fresh, with intense red and dark fruit flavors and notes of tarragon, black pepper and floral candy. Powerful but light in weight (at about 13% alcohol) and displaying excellent balance and precision. According to Barruol, 80% of the fruit was from the Cote Brune, and the average vine yield was just 18 hectoliters per hectare. "My model is Jamet," he commented.

About This Producer


Located in the very heart of Gigondas, this property has been in the family for 500 years, with ancient stone cellars that haven't changes much since they were hewn out of the rock. The wines are made by Louis Barroul, a fanatical and uncompromising individual who extracts from the land the true essence of the grape and is driven to make nothing but top-notch wines. Louis is a hands-on type of winemaker, and even with the grapes he contracts for, he personally oversees the thinning, pruning, ripening and harvesting. This dedication and surveillance pays off in spades in the end with wines that are focused and concentrated without being flabby. They showcase an array of balanced fruit, spice and earth flavors.
