Reviews 93-95 points Wine Advocate "Less garrigue-laden than some of the other Gigondas bottlings at this domaine, the full-bodied 2016 Gigondas Clos Derriere Vieille is rich, ripe and fruit-driven, offering fresh berries and cherries that pick up lovely hints of roses and tea leaves on the long, silky finish. (JC)" 94 points Vinous "Brilliant ruby. Aromas of ripe red berries, cherry and candied flowers, along with candied licorice and exotic spice flourishes. Broad, fleshy and sweet, offering juicy raspberry, cherry-cola and spicecake flavors and a subtle hint of succulent herbs. Closes with superb tenacity, steadily building tannins and a strong echo of floral pastilles. (JR)"
