Deeper and richer, with knockout notes of black raspberry, creme de cassis, spice-box, roasted meats and hints of vanilla bean (this cuvee sees roughly 25% new oak), the 2011 Gigondas Valbelle is full-bodied, seriously concentrated and has a core of sweet fruit that carries through the finish. Still with some oak to integrate, as well as plenty of tannin, this beauty can be enjoyed anytime over the coming decade.

93 points, eRobertParker.com (Issue # 210 - Dec 2013)

A solid, fleshy, amply toasted style, with coffee and ganache notes out front, backed by a solid core of currant paste and plum cake flavors. Best from 2015 through 2026.

93 points, Wine Spectator (Insider: Nov. 13, 2013)

Saturated ruby. High-pitched aromas of red berries, potpourri and smoky minerals, with a subtle note of white pepper building with air. Juicy and precise, offering gently sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that show very good depth. Tangy acidity adds cut and lift to a long, penetrating and gently tannic finish. This wine will be delicious young but it is balanced to age.
