Pallieres Gigondas Les Racines 2014

( 0 Reviews )

Critical Acclaim

Wine Advocate 92 - The 2014 Gigondas les Racines is truly gorgeous, and a serious wine in a difficult vintage for the appellation. From yields of 25 hectoliters per hectare, it has beautiful notes of black cherries, blackberries, hints of pepper and bouquet garni in a medium-bodied, ultra-fine, ultra-pure style. It’s a hidden little gem that will keep for a decade.

Vinous - Spicy and energetic on the nose, displaying intense red and dark berry scents and suggestions of candied flowers and garrigue. Spicy, tightly focused raspberry and bitter cherry flavors deepen and spread out slowly...
Range: 90-92

Wine Spectator 90 - Stylish, with incense notes guiding a core of supple blood orange compote and plum sauce flavors. A light singed alder note gives the finish spine. Drink now through 2024.

The "Les Racines" cuvée, coming from the oldest vines of the domain, possesses the velvet, the depth and the harmony of old Grenache when grown on refined terroirs. Its aging potential is very important, the main factor being the balance.

This cuvée is an enormous aromatic and mouthfilling extravaganza of cornucopian fruit with infinitely dark, complex depth and deliciousness. There is an exuberance to it, and such energy.
