96 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More civilized than it was last year out of barrel, the 2017 Gigondas le Poste boasts lovely blueberry and cassis fruit. It's full-bodied and intense yet silky and darn near elegant on the palate. Don't underestimate the quantity of (ripe) tannins here, which provide a pleasant chewiness to the long, salted-licorice finish." 8/19
95 Points, Wine Spectator: [Hot Wines September 2019] "This is packed with steeped fig, blackberry and boysenberry confiture notes, laced liberally with violet, anise, tobacco and lavender accents. Has enough grip through the finish to keep it honest, with tar and juniper notes adding spine and heft. A beauty. Best from 2020 through 2035."
94-96+ Points, Jeb Dunnuck, www.jebdunnuck.com: "More full-bodied, with incredible purity in its aromatics and fruit, the 2017 Gigondas Le Poste is another 100% Grenache cuvÃ©e that's from a slightly higher elevation, terraced vineyard near the domaine. As with all the cuvÃ©es here, it's not destemmed and is brought up mostly in used barrels. Offering lots of black currants, spice box, graphite, and licorice, it builds beautifully on the palate, has great concentration and intensity, and a blockbuster finish." 9/18
