The color is intense and always very young. At first, the aroma arrives over one period of rather serious closing. In the mouth there is a great general presence without being easy to define in the details; it is a little austere and tannins are rather serious. Balance will return later, the minerality is the guaranteeing one. Drink now through 2012.
"Deep red. Precise aromas of strawberry, raspberry, lavender and minerals seem almost pinot-like in their clarity and delicacy. Lacy red fruit flavors pack plenty of punch but come off almost weightless. Gains weight and power on the long, juicy finish. Really lovely stuff."

"The 2005 Les Pallieres Gigondas has a slightly darker ruby/purple color than the 2004. Moreover, it also has a big, sweet nose of cherry fruit intermixed with truffle, crushed rock, spring flowers, and spice box. It is medium to full-bodied and comes across as a hypothetical blend of a Medoc from Bordeaux and a Pinot Noir from Burgundy. These wines are aged in one- and two-year-old foudres, and the 2005 was cropped at 25 hectoliters per hectare. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 15-17 years.
