2016 Ferraton Pere & Fils "Les Murailles" Gigondas

SKU #1495239 92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Limpid ruby-red. Expressive red/dark berry preserve aromas are complemented by incense and floral pastille accents. Sappy and focused on the palate, offering chewy black raspberry, bitter cherry and licorice flavors and a hint of candied lavender. Smooth tannins build steadily on an impressively long, energetic finish that leaves behind repeating floral and cherry notes. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Better known for its efforts in the Northern Rhône, Ferraton has turned out what looks to be a solid 2016 Gigondas Les Murailles, full of dark fruit, cola and spice. It's creamy and supple on the mid-palate, then firms up, turning tannic and a bit warm on the finish. (JC) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

K&L Notes

Mostly Grenache, this wine also has small amounts of Syrah and Mourvèdre, which bring color, weight and tannin to the blend. At four years since the vintage date, the wine is hitting its stride nicely. It can still use a half-hour decant, but once it opens up it is beautifully layered, rich and complex. The nose shows full, heady aromas of luscious black cherry and cassis, and hints of cedar and leather. The palate is a nicely weighted array of red fruits, licorice, ripe tannin and fresh, bright acidity. All of the elements come into play nicely here, and the wine offers a number of pairing options such as braised lamb and stew.
