St Cosme Gigondas le Claux 2011

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Full-bodied, layered and voluptuously textured, the 2011 Gigondas Le Claux (which comes from limestone soils and vines planted in 1914) has gorgeous lavender, incense, dried underbrush and floral notes, as well as a knockout core of black raspberry and black cherry-styled fruit. Seamlessly constructed, with loads of fruit, fine tannin and excellent overall freshness, it can be enjoyed anytime over the coming decade or more.
