The 2016 Gigondas Cuvee Louisiana is more elegant and finesse-driven when tasted side by side with the La Souteyrade cuvee. Offering notes of blueberries, violets, lavender and flowers, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, serious depth of fruit, ripe tannin and a big finish.

95-97 points, Jeb Dunnuck (Oct 2017)

Again my pick of the various cuvées, the 2016 Gigondas La Louisiane looks potentially the equal of the 2015 when tasted from foudre. Hints of cola and mocha on the nose add dark nuances to the big, ripe raspberry fruit. There's plenty of acid and tannin to support aging here.
