2020 Domaine Les Pallieres, Gigondas, Racines 6x75cl

JD91-93
From extremely old vines are planted in the foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail and a Grenache-dominated blend with deep aromatics, wild brambles and sweet/savoury spice on the nose. A dense, dark, grippy palate with pronounced mineral notes that shows deeper yet extremely finessed side of Gigondas.

2020 Domaine Vieux Telegraphe, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rouge 6x75cl

DE96
65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre, and 5% Cinsault and others. Cask sample. Spicy, rather funky character on the nose. Sweet fruit but there is a hint of astringency here which takes away from... the whole. Acidity quite forward. Berry fruit on the palate. Firm tannins, less immediately appealing than many a 2020 Châteauneuf. 15.5+ pts., www.jancisrobinson.com

2020 le Clos du Caillou, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Les Quartz 6x75cl

JR17
"Deepest colour of the four Clos du Caillou cuvées (plenty of Syrah). The aromatics are again restrained but there’s an attractive pitch of fruit and a spicy note that grows with aeration. Rich... and sweet, the fruit really concentrated on the palate. Tannins firm but very fine and completely interwoven with the fruit. Another for ageing." 17 pts., www.jancisrobinson.com

"90% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre. Aged 18 months in foudres. Organic. Cask sample. Reticent nose with just the semblance of dark and red fruit. Palate rich and intense, the fruit concentrated, the tannins powerful and long. Freshness on the finish. Clearly built for ageing." 17+ pts., www.jancisrobinson.com

"Huge intensity of burgundian red-berry fruit. Explodes on the palate. Layers of fruit with oh-so-fine tannins and amazing freshness and length on the finish. Real persistence aromatically. Powerful but elegant and restrained. Huge potential for ageing." 17.5 pts., James Lawther MW, www.jancisrobinson.com

2020 Domaine de la Bouissiere, Gigondas 12x75cl

Old vines and elevation provide an invigorating elegance and freshness on a nose of juicy, red fruit grenache, leading to equally juicy, bitter, black syrah fruit on a palate that shows at once raciness, great power and depth. Wonderfully interwoven tannis, ong, peppery, juicy finish. An exceptionally unique Gigondas.

2020 Famille Perrin, Gigondas, Domaine du Clos des Tourelles 6x75cl

JR17
"Mid crimson. Has the garrigue and gently floral aroma of the L'Argnée Gigondas 2020. A little bit toasty too. Deliciously scented. Firm and serious on the palate. Finely dry tannins. A restrained style compared with the Famille Perrin La Gille Gigondas 2020." 17 pts., www.jancisrobinson.com

2020 Vieux Donjon (Michel Lucien), Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rouge 12x75cl

JD94-96
A beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, classic effort from this team, the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape boasts a deeper ruby/purple color, traditional notes of ground pepper, Provençal garrigue,... smoked meat, and red and black fruits, a terrific mid-palate, ripe, silky tannins, and a great, great finish. This is an outstanding vintage for this cuvée that’s going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for 20 years or more" 94-96pts, Jeb Dunnuck Drink 2023-2045
