Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "Another solid négociant effort, the 2017 Gigondas Pierre Aiguille combines hints of Mexican chocolate and red raspberries in a full-bodied, silky-textured wine. It's ripe yet chewy, with attractive hints of orange zest and licorice on the long finish. It's 80% Grenache, with 10% each Mourvèdre and Syrah. Drink date: 2020-2030." Aug 2019
Jeb Dunnuck:. "This Northern Rhône powerhouse domaine has turned out a structured, age-worthy 2017 Gigondas Pierre Aiguille. Based largely on Grenache aged in French oak vats, its darker ruby color is followed by classic, old-school notes of blackberries, black cherries, ground herbs, and earthy aromas and flavors. With medium-bodied richness and depth, building tannins, and a solid frame, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age and will keep for upwards of a decade." Sep 2019
Winery: "Beautiful ruby red color, the nose id powerful, fine and reveals notes of black fruits (blackberries, blueberries) enhanced with spicy and toasted notes. With a surprising texture, this wine is balanced with a beautiful freshness, nice tannins, a fine intensity and a very elegant aromatic persistence."
