Tasting Notes:
Drinking remarkably well already, this is a full, rich, modern Gigondas (not so much rusticity), which oozes black cherry liqueur wrapped in velvety tannins. Good length. This will be even better after several years.

Critic Reviews:
'The 2013 vintage was marked by coulure, resulting in a small crop. This is very full-bodied. It still has succulent fruit on the palate, mostly strawberry, and it is taking on woody herbs, smoke, worked leather and menthol. Mature now but won't fall apart any time soon. Food-friendly, great price'. 91/200 (Matt Walls, Decanter, 12/20)

'Which would you rather have: a costly Burgundy from a leading estate or a tasty, single domaine red Rhone made by equally devoted winemakers for about half the price? Laurent Brusset is the third generation of his family to live and work at this domaine since 1947. His low yielding Tradition is mostly Grenache with a dab each of brutish Mourvedre, spicy Syrah and perfumed Cinsault. The result is a bold, plump, plummy, peppery red with dazzling complex, lush fruit that is gorgeous now but will be even better with a few more years in the cellar.' Jane MacQuitty (The Times 14/03/2015)

"Impressive dark fruit, chocolate, wood smoke and leather-like notes in its medium-bodied, firm, masculine personality. I like the fruit here but it should benefit from a year or two in bottle>" 90/100 Jeb Dunnock (Wine Advocate)
