This wine is the end result of one vat. It is a masterpiece of balance, structure, aromas, spices, and its roundness and elegance. In its youth and in its future maturity, it will give great pleasure. For us it is a gift offered by Nature. It is Unique.
Wine Advocate 90 points - Made from the same blend as the 2009, the 2009 Gigondas Confidentiel comes from a tiny 4.5 acre vineyard in the sector of Gigondas known as La Tour. This brilliant effort reveals notes of black cherries, licorice, camphor and smoky roasted herbs as well as velvety tannins. It is a fleshy, succulent Gigondas to drink over the next 7-8 years.
