Critical Acclaim

RP91+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Dec 2013

"Along the same lines stylistically, the 2012 Gigondas Cotes Jugunda will require more patience. The same blend and elevage as the 2011, it is loaded with big black fruits, pepper, earth, graphite and minerality as well as hints of new oak. Medium to full-bodied, structured and tannic, yet with a stacked mid-palate and excellent overall concentration, it should benefit from short-term cellaring and have 12–15 years or longevity." (91–93+ pts.)

ST90+ Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Jan/Feb 2014

"Opaque ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed bouquet displays an array of black and blue fruits, incense, licorice and candied flowers. Supple, velvety, palate-staining blueberry and cherry-cola flavors are buoyed by tangy acidity. Ripe and fleshy but lively too, finishing with excellent clarity and resonating spiciness." (90–92 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.
