Wine AdvocateOne of the top wines at this address, the 2016 Gigondas les Hauts de Montmirail shows incredible perfumed freshness, red raspberry fruit and a full-bodied, richly creamy texture. On top of all that, this blend of 50% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 25% Mourvèdre shows absolutely no sign of excessive weight or heat despite its enormous ripeness. It should be appealing on release yet capable of aging a decade or more.

Wine SpectatorVery solid, with a focused beam of dark plum, blackberry and boysenberry pâte de fruit flavors supported by grippy bramble and tar notes and backed by a lingering mineral edge. A roasted apple wood accent frames all the elements. Best from 2020 through 2035. 600 cases made.
