"Starting off the 2014s, the 2014 Gigondas is a solid, classic, elegant effort that offers darker fruits, earth, Provencal garrigue and spice in a medium-bodied package. It’s not a blockbuster, but then again, no 2014s are. I always love the wines from the Chauvet family’s Domaine du Grapillon d’Or and they make a relatively polished, sexy and pleasure-bent style of wine that can drink well in its youth, yet keep for a decade. " (WA)

"Deep ruby. Blackberry, lavender, smoky minerals and a suggestion of cured meat on the pungent nose. Black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are braced by juicy acidity and complicated by subtle licorice and allspice flourishes. Powerful but energetic as well, finishing with firm cut and focus and building tannins." (VM)
