    August 14, 2014 - Bought at domaine and enjoyed over two days. Fantastic Gigondas. Slightly more rustique and dark than Louisiane which is my favourite of the two. Still this is an excellent and well balanced wine. Will improve further over the next couple of years I believe.

    May 26, 2014 - Fun bottle to try alongside an 09 Theodoric. The Gig was heavier on all aspects. Big ripe cherries, peppered meat, spice, sweet dried herbs, and anise. Balanced out after a little air and had me wanting lamb with some sort of cherry sauce. Would like to try again in a few years.

    May 23, 2014 - Very regionally correct which I love. Nice open bouquet on the nose, red melted fruits, dry dessert air, mild sagebrush maybe some lavender. So seamless on the palate, easy drinking with seamless fruits, spices, fresh basil and sandy earth notes. Pretty wine that was so easy to drink and killer with Koren short ribs.

    May 19, 2014 - Open for business from the outset. A crushed flower petal medley springs from the bottle and jumps from the glass. Clearly made from the same vineyard parcels as the previous vintage of Les Souteyrades; it shows all the same aromatics and terroir elements. This is a softer, more refined, less flashy wine though; slightly more restrained yet every bit as sumptuous. Drank this over three days and it was every bit as good on the third as the first. The Yin to the 2010 vintage's Yang.

    The 2011 La Louisiane is even better.
