Enjoyed Jan 4, 2015. Mostly I would endorse Jeb Dunnuck's review which is quoted on the Vintages' page. I would highlight "gorgeously concentrated" and add "complex."
From Dunnuck: 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre ... it boasts awesome, spice-laced blackcurrant fruit, underbrush, garrigue and pepper-driven aromatics that flow to a rich, layered and gorgeously concentrated Gigondas. .. It should have 10-12 years or more / Score - 91-94. (Dunnuck/parker.com Dec '13)
