Ratings and Tasting Notes:
RP93 The spitting image of elegance and finesse, the 2014 Gigondas le Lieu Dit (100% Grenache all from sandy soils) offers up a beautiful perfume of ripe strawberries, framboise, creamy licorice and crushed flowers. Showing the more fresh, lively style of the vintage, yet with terrific density and depth, it has sweet tannin, a silky texture and a great finish. This beauty is already impossible to resist, but will evolve nicely for a decade. There are just over 400 cases of this beauty made.
AG92 Vivid ruby-red. A sexy, highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits and lavender, and a smoky flourish builds in the glass. Expansive black raspberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors show impressive depth as well as energy. Finishes juicy and very long, featuring building sweetness and pliant, even tannins that fold smoothly into the lush fruit.
WS92 A pure, high-pitched style, with raspberry coulis, fresh damson plum and bitter cherry notes lending this a sleek, racy feel, while light roobois tea, blood orange and anise details chime in. Reveals a flash of iron on the finish. Sneakily long, showing impressive range. Best from 2017 through 2025. 550 cases made.
