This Gigondas certainly qualifies as an astonishing bargain, almost suspect if offered by another merchant. I'm confirming Joe Czerwinski's review below, having tasted during last month's trek through France. In fact, I'm more taken with the wine. We both agree this is a wine to drink within a few years – an unquantifiable level of decadence insures this time window will not be challenged. Slip this in a blind tasting of Chateauneuf and see how well it does at a fraction of the cost. What a bottle of Gigondas – priced as a Cotes du Rhone.

The full-bodied 2017 Gigondas Pas de Montmirail features bold fruit flavors of black cherries and apricots, supple—verging on creamy—tannins and a long, harmonious finish. No, it's not hugely complex, nor will it be the longest-lived Gigondas, but it offers plenty of pleasure, even at this young stage.

90-92 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate (Issue # 239 - Oct 2018)
