Winemaker's Notes

#67Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

When young, the "Terrasse du Diable"cuvée has the minerality, freshness and sometimes overbearing tannins of high-lying terroirs. The best vintages can age for more than 20 years.

Critical Acclaim

"The sensational 2007 Gigondas Les Terraces de Diable reveals gloriously sweet black cherry and black raspberry fruit intermixed with notions of licorice, loamy soil, and roasted herbs. With terrific fruit density, a full-bodied richness, and striking elegance and precision, it should drink well for 15 or more years."
93 Points

"Polished and pure, with delicious layers of plum sauce, braised fig and melted licorice that glide through the dense but silky-textured finish. Hints of graphite and incense lurk in the background. Long, with buried minerality. Should age nicely. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Clairette. Drink now through 2015."
92 Points

"Ruby-red. Pungent smoky aromas of cherry, black raspberry, spicecake and flowers, plus a strong mineral undertone. Round and velvety on entry, the firmer in the middle, offering juicy red berry and cherry flavors with repeating smokiness. Impressively energetic on the finish, which echoes the red fruit and spice notes. I'd keep my hands off this wine for at least another five years."
