Tasting Notes

Probably my favorite of the lineup, the 2020 Gigondas Le Poste comes from a slightly higher elevation site and, as with all of these single vineyard releases, is all Grenache that was not destemmed and was brought up mostly in used barrels. A quintessential expression of this terroir, it offers an incredible array of darker fruits, garrigue, pepper, and graphite, and it's medium to full-bodied, incredibly pure, and flawlessly balanced on the palate. Certainly in the top two to three wines in the vintage, it’s going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 15-20+.

Score: 97

More camphor, dried garrigue, flowers, and savory red and black fruits emerge from the 2020 Gigondas Le Poste, a medium to full-bodied red with a rich, concentrated mouthfeel, building tannins, and no shortage of length on the finish. The cellar will be your friend on this one, but it’s another wine that ranks with the crème de la crème of the vintage.

Score: 95 - 97
