2017 Alain Jaume Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail - 91 pts - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Based on 65% Grenache and the rest Mourvèdre and Syrah, the 2017 Gigondas Terrasses De Montmirail is an impressive wine from the Jaume family and has classic ripe cherry and black raspberry fruit as well as notes of white flowers, graphite, and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, balanced, with sweet tannins, drink it over the coming decade."

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2016 Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail from the Jaume family is 65% Grenache and the balance Mourvèdre and Syrah, aged mostly in tank with a small part in smaller barrels. Its deep ruby color is followed by a pretty, elegant, seamless wine that has great notes of red fruits, white flowers, spices, and a limestone-like minerality. Silky and polished, it shines for its elegance and purity."

2016 Alain Jaume Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail - 94 pts - Editors' Choice - WE

wine enthusiast 94 pts"Initial notes of smoke and char fade with aeration revealing layers of decadent black plum and cherry flavors here. This is an intoxicatingly fruity, luscious wine that's balanced pertly by fresh acidity and a crisp mineral undertone. Nuanced by spice and garrigue, it's drinking beautifully already but should improve well through 2030."

2016 Alain Jaume Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail - 93 pts - WA

wa93"The 2016 Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail shows why everyone is excited about the 2016s in the Southern Rhône. A full-bodied, rich and velvety wine, it comes close to being chocolaty and fudge-like without closing that border, instead delivering dark plum and cherry fruit, dusty, earthy notes and savory spice. It should drink well for a decade or more. - Joe Czerwinski"
