All Grenache, the 2016 Gigondas le Claux comes a parcel of vines planted around 1880. Its got an incredibly floral and tea-like nose, followed by expressive red berries, even fraises des bois. Full-bodied, silky and long, it manages to be an epic wine, not for its power but for its elegance, finesse and complexity.

Proprietor Louis Barruol continues to turn out some of the most exciting wines in his home appellation of Gigondas while expanding his ngociant activities. For those who didnt know, he also has a joint venture to produce Riesling and Pinot Noir in New Yorks Finger Lakes. Hes bullish on the Southern Rhne 2016s. As he said to me, "Maybe it is as good as 2010." Hes tinkered with the Gigondas lineup, eliminating the Valbelle bottling and blending it with his Gigondas. The other bottlings are all single-parcel, 100 Grenache wines le Claux, Hominis Fides and le Poste. Barruol is a champion of Gigondass move to add white wine to the appellation. I reviewed his 2016 Ctes du Rhone le Poste last year, a barrel-fermented Clairette, and it has opened up a bit since then, making a more convincing case. Reviews of the Northern Rhne bottlings will be included at a later date.
