91 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2011 Gigondas is a fantastic effort in the vintage. Aged 30% in demi-muids, it offers gorgeous purity, with notions of blackberry, mineral, wild herbs and flowers in a medium to full-bodied, elegant and surprisingly fresh and lively package. It-s hard to resist now, yet given the overall balance here, I can-t imagine it not evolving gracefully for at least another 5-7 years.
Run by Philippe Cartoux, Domaine des Espiers covers roughly 27 acres, 10 of which are in Gigondas, with the balance in Sablet and Cotes du Rhone. These were some of the top Gigondas I was able to taste for this report. While the straight Gigondas is very traditional in style (even though it has a small part aged in demi-muids), the Cuvee Les Blaches is aged all in demi-muids and shows a much more modern profile. Both are superb and worth seeking out."
The southern Rhone valley has had an epic run of great vintages, and has also been a hot bed for value. Domaine des Espiers has quietly become a star in the Rhone valley. Owner Philippe Cartoux makes wines that speak for themselves, and now have the critics buzzing over the quality he is achieving. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Rhone critic Jeb Dunnuck is certainly thrilled with these, saying things like "The 2011 Gigondas is a fantastic effort in the vintage.", as well as "These were some of the top Gigondas I was able to taste for this report....Both are superb and worth seeking out."
Fans of Chateauneuf du Pape will flip for how good of a value this is!
