93pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate
Get your ooh-la-la on with this Yves Cheron Gigondas. It's a spectacular representation of the Gigondas terroir, with gritty, floral earthiness that melds seamlessly with bold fruit and inviting tannins, all wrapped up in a beautifully full, food-friendly body. Really, what's not to like?? Try it with a hearty wild mushroom ragout tossed with fresh fettuccine and lots of freshly grated parmesan. If it's Sunday dinner, roast a leg of lamb studded with garlic slices, surrounded by cippoline onions, potatoes and carrots. We paired it with a garlicky French sausage over warm lentil salad with carrots and a Dijon-forward vinaigrette and we'd do it again. Voila. C'est tout.

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Gigondas here is a terrific effort, showcasing balance and complexity rather than sheer power. Flowering garrigue, raspberries and orange zest combine with waves of cherries and hints of licorice in this full-bodied, supple wine that should drink well for up to a decade (2017-2027)." Oct 2017

Trade Notes: "This Gigondas shows a spicy, baked stone-fruit quality with gently warming tannins, that is redolent of the craggy, arid, sun-kissed landscape where the grapes are grown. Arguably a touch denser and more structured than its Vacqueyras sibling, it has the same bright fruit and balance and is equally versatile.

This Gigondas wine is an outstanding Southern Rhône blend from another bastion of reliability in the vicinity, our old friend Yves Chéron. It cries out for bold, rustic cuisine and will mature gracefully for a decade or longer in good vintages. The 'Grand Montmirail' bottling of Gigondas hails from mature rootstock in patron Yves Cheron's own vineyard. Eminently approachable now (although worth decanting) it will cellar well for a further 8 to 10 years."
