Domaine Notre Dame des Pallieres 2018 Gigondas Les Mourres
"Matured in a combination of concrete tanks (80%) and foudres (20%), the 2018 Gigondas les Mourres is a full-bodied blend of 80% Grenache and 10% each Mourvèdre and Syrah. Dark-fruited and ripe, it delivers black cherries and plums, cola and spice on the nose, supple tannins on the palate and a lingering, silky finish tinged with anise and mocha. Note that the designation, "les Mourres," appears only on the back label.
This property, owned by the Roux family and with holdings in several different appellations, has been on a serious roll over recent vintages." Robert Parker 92 Points
"Veins of graphite and granite meld into ripe, almost caramelized, flavors of black cherry and blueberry in this powerful Grenache-dominant blend (accented by 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre). A gripping, firmly tannic wine in youth, it should ease and improve through 2028. Wine Enthusiast 92 Points
