Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

The 2003 Gigondas Cuvee Valbelle is a blend of 90% Grenache, and the balance Syrah, that was aged in 50% new French oak. A big, ripe, full-bodied effort that holds everything together, it gives up notions of black plums, blackberries and cassis to go with pepper, cured meats and roasted herbs. Possessing rock-solid, mid-palate depth and a core of sweet fruit, it’s drinking at point, but should have a gradual evolution over the coming 4-5 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Deep violet. Rich, powerful scents of cassis, creme de mure, candied licorice and cherry cola. Deep and folded in on itself, with stunningly concentrated but focused dark berry and plum flavors saturating the palate. Finishes ripe and long, with great thrust. From 80-year-old grenache vines.
