„The 2011 Gigondas Le Poste (from limestone and marl soils and a plot of vines just beside the estate that was replanted in 1963) is the most finesse-driven of the three single vineyard releases, with an understated elegance and freshness that comes out with time in the glass. Raspberry, violets, forest floor and crushed flower-like qualities all emerge from the glass, and this full-bodied, supple and elegant beauty never puts a foot wrong. It too is a brilliant effort from a less than straightforward vintage. Enjoy it over the coming 10-15 years. 96 Punkte!
Without a doubt, the leading estate in Gigondas is Louis Barruol’s Chateau Saint-Cosme. Located just outside the village, he releases an assortment of world class Gigondas, as well as a number of value priced, negotiate-styled Cotes du Rhone efforts that always deliver high-quality (these are normally released under his Saint-Cosme label and do not say Chateau Saint-Cosme). Both 2011 and 2012 are incredibly strong here and readers should not miss these wines! The three single vineyard releases are basically 100% Grenache, from unique terroirs, that are brought up all in Burgundy barrels, 30% being new, 40% 1-year-old and the balance 2-3-year old. In addition to these wines, I review a number of Barruol’s northern Rhone releases in Issue 210 as well, and covered his Chateauneuf du Papes in Issue 209.” (Parker)
