Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 93

The luxury offering, the 2001 Gigondas Valbelle (offered only in the best years), is a blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah aged in equal parts new and 1-year old oak casks. This blockbuster boasts an inky/purple color along with a big, sweet nose of wood smoke, melted licorice, plums, kirsch liqueur, blackberries, and blueberries. The complex aromas are followed by a full-bodied, ripe, textured, impeccably pure, well-balanced wine with elevated tannin, suggesting 2-3 years of cellaring will be beneficial. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016. Importer: a Patrick Lesec Selection, various American importers, including Stacole Fine Wines, Boca Raton, FL; tel. (561) 998-0039, Classic Wines, Boston, MA; tel.

Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016

Vinous – 93

Saturated red-ruby. Deep, burnished aromas of plum, strawberry, chocolate, woodsmoke and pepper. Superconcentrated and lush but bright, with juicy flavors of plum, raspberry, strawberry and pepper spreading out to coat the entire palate. Has a deeply smoky quality bordering on exotic and a very suave texture. Impressively layered, sweet and deep wine with a very long, vinous aftertaste. This was even more impressive with extended aeration. [Stephen Tanzer, 01/01/2004]
