“One Sexy Gigondas”- JD on Domaine La Font de Notre Dame

La Font de Notre Dame, Gigondas le Mas 2017

92 points – Vinous

“Deep glistening crimson. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red fruits, incense and candied flowers, and a smoky mineral note builds in the glass. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering primary raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and an earthy licorice accent. Takes on a spicy quality on the back half that carries strongly through the impressively long, gently tannic finish.”- Josh Raynolds, Vinous

“One sexy Gigondas that’s loaded with notions of kirsch, black cherries, graphite, and crushed rock-like minerality, the medium-bodied 2017 Gigondas Le Mas has a terrific core of sweet fruit, ripe tannins, and a great finish. Based on 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvedre, raised 80% in concrete tanks and 20% in barrels, it’s a ripe, polished wine that stays pure, balanced, and Provençal. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years or more.”- JebDunnuck.com
