Tasting Notes:
Beautiful black fruit (50% Grenache, the balance equal parts of Syrah and Mourvedre) grown high in the Dentelles de Montmirail giving this wine plenty of welcome freshness. The 50% new oak used is swallowed up by the cassis and spice-laden palate which has fresh minerality and a superb structure. From 2021.

Critic Reviews:
"One of the top wines at this address, the 2016 Gigondas les Hauts de Montmirail shows incredible perfumed freshness, red raspberry fruit and a full-bodied, richly creamy texture. On top of all that, this blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre shows absolutely no sign of excessive weight or heat despite its enormous ripeness." 94+/100 (Jeb Dunnock, Wine Advocate)
