2016 Domaine les Pallieres Gigondas Terrasse du Diable$34.99
Jeb Dunnuck 95 points! "The finest vintage to date is unquestionably the 2016 Gigondas Terrasses de Diable, which is the usual blend of 85% Grenache and the balance Mourvèdre and Cinsault. It offers classic framboise, limestone-like minerality, white flowers, pepper, and Asian spices in its full-bodied, seamless, incredibly pure personality. With no hard edges, ultra-fine tannins, perfect balance, and a great finish, it's a sensational Gigondas to drink over the coming decade or more."
Vinous (Josh Raynolds) 92-94 points! "Bright violet. Ripe cherries and red berry liqueur on the perfumed nose, joined by a smoky nuance that builds in the background. Shows impressive power and depth on the palate, offering sappy raspberry and candied cherry flavors complicated by hints of candied lavender and licorice. Finishes gently tannic and impressively long, delivering solid punch and leaving a sexy floral note behind."
