($73) Glass-staining ruby. Exotically perfumed bouquet offers an expansive array of red and dark berry, floral and spice scents. Raspberry, mulberry and lavender pastille flavors are strikingly pure and concentrated but not heavy, benefiting from a suave spiciness and good mineral lift. The finish is sweet, penetrating and exceptionally long, leaving lush red fruit and floral notes behind.

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.
