Wine Advocate

93-95 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Less garrigue-laden than some of the other Gigondas bottlings at this domaine, the full-bodied 2016 Gigondas Clos Derriere Vieille is rich, ripe and fruit-driven, offering fresh berries and cherries that pick up lovely hints of roses and tea leaves on the long, silky finish." 8/18

Vinous Media

93-95 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous: "Lurid ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of Chambord, potpourri, garrigue and Asian spices carry an intense mineral overtone. Impressively concentrated, seamless and penetrating on the palate, offering densely packed raspberry liqueur, cherry pastry and floral pastille flavors that put on weight with air while maintaining vivacity. The floral quality repeats emphatically on the gently tannic finish, which clings with serious tenacity and appealing sweetness." 08/18

James Suckling

93-94 Points, James Suckling, "Trademark Santa Duc freshness and purity with a swerve into darker-fruit territory. Plums and blackberries, dark, brambly herbs and woody spices. The palate is fresh, lithe and punchy. Really impressive. Drink or hold." 08/18
