Description    : 

"The 2015 Gigondas Aux Lieux Dits is the most approachable of the 2015s, as it had already been fined and blended when I sampled it. It was aged 90% in foudres and 10% in terra-cotta. Bright cherries and raspberries carry attractive hints of ground spices in this medium to full-bodied wine. It does still have a bit of chewy tannin to resolve." -RP'91

"A fluid, fleshy and deeply structured wine with dark cherry and blackberry fruit flavors amid sturdy yet supple tannins. Good weight and presence." -JS'93
