Winemaker's Notes

This debut 2009 Lieu Dit bottling was a head-turner. The color is an almost black deep garnet color. A captivating nose of great purity of fruit, bursting with cocoa. In the mouth, Lieu Dit has a solid structure, finesse, and concentration. A remarkable wine.

Critical Acclaim

"s modern-style red nearly gushes with velvety plum, anise, blackberry cobbler and cassis flavors, but stays focused and defined, showing toasty spice, violet and mocha notes to frame the lengthy finish. A peacock display of fruit, with the length and precision to back it up."
94 Points

"he fascinating 2009 Gigondas Le Lieu-Dit, which comes from a 5 acre parcel planted with 95% Grenache and 5% Syrah, is aged in older small barrels. This superb wine is a candidate for Gigondas of the vintage. Its dense ruby/purple hue is accompanied by cascading, fragrant notes of blueberries, blackberries and black cherry liqueur. Voluptuously textured, full-bodied, complex and hedonistic, this terrific, full-throttle Gigondas can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years. Don’t miss it!"
