Opaque ruby. Hypnotic bouquet of red and dark berry preserves, incense and lavender, with intense star anise and mineral qualities adding vivacity. Deep, energetic and pure, with outstanding focus to its spice- and floral-accented raspberry and mulberry flavors. Tannins build slowly on the finish, which hangs on with noteworthy tenacity and sweetness.

This beauty has a cornucopia of flavors. Coffee, cola, vanilla and pepper on the finish. It manages to combine heft and finess. Ultra long finish goes on and on, due to well balanced acidity.

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.
