Name Les Pallieres Terrasse Du Diable Gigondas 2016 (ID# 3325)
Varietal Red Blend
Region France: Rhone, Southern
Notes "Tasted prior to its July bottling, the 2016 Gigondas Terrasse du Diable is an outstanding effort. Fine garrigue nuances and piney scents bring depth and complexity to the ripe black cherry and raspberry fruit. Full-bodied, silky, long and elegant, with lingering thyme and savory notes on the finish, it shouldn't be missed." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Ripe cherries and red berry liqueur on the perfumed nose, joined by a smoky nuance that builds in the background. Shows impressive power and depth on the palate, offering sappy raspberry and candied cherry flavors complicated by hints of candied lavender and licorice. Finishes gently tannic and impressively long, delivering solid punch and leaving a sexy floral note behind." (Josh Raynolds, Vinous)
