2016 Domaine les Pallieres "Terrasse du Diable" Gigondas

SKU #1394856 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The finest vintage to date is unquestionably the 2016 Gigondas Terrasses de Diable, which is the usual blend of 85% Grenache and the balance Mourvèdre and Cinsault. It offers classic framboise, limestone-like minerality, white flowers, pepper, and Asian spices in its full-bodied, seamless, incredibly pure personality. With no hard edges, ultra-fine tannins, perfect balance, and a great finish, it's a sensational Gigondas to drink over the coming decade or more. Inner quote mark (9/2018)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Wild, garrigue herbs and dark berries in a fresh style with violets and dried roses. There’s a savory, tarry, salt-licorice edge in the mouth. Moody wine. Silky, lozenge-like, glossy and polished tannins. Dark fruit and dark chocolate with a kick of bitter herbs. Finishes with impressive freshness and effortless depth. Charming. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Brilliant ruby-red. A hugely expressive, seductively perfumed bouquet evokes ripe dark fruits, potpourri and licorice, lifted by a smoky mineral overtone. Concentrated yet lively in style, showing noteworthy clarity and thrust to the cherry, boysenberry and floral pastille flavors. Becomes nervier and spicier on the youthfully tannic finish, which hangs on with superb tenacity. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted prior to its July bottling, the 2016 Gigondas Terrasse du Diable is an outstanding effort. Fine garrigue nuances and piney scents bring depth and complexity to the ripe black cherry and raspberry fruit. Full-bodied, silky, long and elegant, with lingering thyme and savory notes on the finish, it shouldn't be missed. (JC) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ripe and fresh, with good purity to the mix of red currant and damson plum coulis flavors that stretch out against a floral and alder backdrop. Offers a pretty, piercing feel to the finish. (JM) Inner quote mark (8/2019)
