Bright ruby. Displays vibrant, sharply focused raspberry, cherry, potpourri and baking spice aromas, with hints of cola and succulent herbs. Shows fine delineation and spicy lift to its bitter cherry and red berry flavors, which become sweeter as the wine opens up. Echoes the floral and spice notes on a long, penetrating finish that’s framed by subtle, fine-grained tannins. (Josh Raynolds)

As to the 2020s from bottle, these are all beautiful wines as well. The 2020 Gigondas Tradition Le Grand Montmirail has a round, supple, quintessential Gigondas style as well as notes of red and black fruits, Provençal garrigue, sandalwood, and leather. Medium-bodied, soft, and ready to go, it’s going to evolve nicely for 7–8 years, probably longer, although I see no need to delay gratification. The blend is 70% Grenache and 10% each of Cinsault, Mourvèdre, and Syrah, aged 60% in vats and 40% in used demi-muids. As with all the wines here, it was completely destemmed. (Jeb Dunnuck)

RP91+91–93 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2019
The 2018 Lirac Via Secreta includes a healthy 40% Mourvèdre, with the rest of the assemblage evenly divided among Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah. While the nose is subdued, with just hints of cherries and mint, the palate is full-bodied, ripe and expansive, framed by silky tannins. It’s almost creamy, yet vibrant at the same time, with a fresh, zesty finish.
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2020
Loads of violet and lilac perfume accent fresh, primary blackberry and plum flavors in this irresistibly fruity blend of Mourvèdre (40%), Cinsault (20%), Grenache (20%) and Syrah (20%). It’s not a deeply complex wine but voluptuous and immediately likable. Fine, feathery tannins and a touch of minerality linger on the finish. Ready now but should hold through 2024.

JD95+95–97 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 12/14/2020
Also pure Southern Rhône goodness, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes has classy notes of red and blue fruits, candied orange, flowers, peppery garrigue, and loads of Asian spices. Beautifully textured, silky, and elegant on the palate, it has wonderful tannins, a notable sense of freshness, and a great, great finish. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2022
Ripe and expressive, with a lovely display of warmed plum, raspberry and blackberry puree flavors infused with red tea and anise notes. Features a solid mineral note that chimes on the finish, while a roasted apple wood frame keeps it all in line as the fruit takes an encore. Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah. Best from 2023 through 2036. 650 cases made, 200 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
