Critical Acclaim

RP90 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Dec 2013

"The 2011 Gigondas (60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre aged 12 months in concrete vats) is a knockout effort that offers up beautiful spice, crushed flowers and copious, sweet red fruits that flow to a medium to full-bodied, elegant and perfumed Gigondas. Showing the vintage profile with its exuberant personality, this classy 2011 will dish out loads of pleasure over the coming 6–7 years. Drink now–2020." (90 pts.)

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
