Le Poste in 2009 is elegant like a black truffle aroma. A fruit made out of earth and stones. The wine is beautiful, a little different, with a very clear "Poste" expression. Find notes of violet, raspberry, blackberry, lode and limestone.
"Broad and deep, delivering gorgeous perfumy black tea and warm anise notes up front, followed by dense flavors of bittersweet cocoa, roasted fig, hoisin sauce and smoked alder wood. The long, fleshy finish has great cut, with a singed iron note hanging on. Offers terrific range and length. The most compelling Gigondas being made right now. Best from 2012 through 2023. 100 cases made."
"Deep ruby. Aromas of cherry, dark berry compote, cola and licorice, with a smoky, spicy quality in the background. Energetic blackberry and bitter cherry flavors become sweeter with air and pick up suggestions of singed orange and candied lavender. Wild and expressive Gigondas, with excellent finishing thrust and lingering florality.
