90 - Vacqueyras 'Louis Bernard' 2018

'Even better than the 2017, the 2018 Vacqueyras is a similar, forward, fleshy, fruit bomb beauty that has a deep purple color and loads of blue fruits, mint, garrigue, and floral aromas and flavors. It too is ideal for drinking over the coming 4-6 years.' Sept.2019

89 -Vacqueyras 'Louis Bernard' 2017
'This larger production effort always seems to deliver, and the 2017 Vacqueyras is a balanced, charming, totally satisfying effort that’s well worth buying. Giving up lots of dark fruits, pepper, garrigue, and meaty nuances, it’s medium-bodied, fruit-forward, and ideal for drinking over the coming 4-6 years.' Sept.2019

89-92 - Gigondas 'Louis Bernard' 2018
'Not yet bottled, the 2018 Gigondas is a big mouthful of a Gigondas that offers fruit bomb levels of cassis, ground pepper, and spice. Soft, forward, and sexy, it’s not going to make old bones, but it certainly packs the fruit. Drink bottles over the coming 4-6 years.' Sept.2019

90-92 - Gigondas 'Louis Bernard' 2017
'I loved the 2017 Gigondas, which is going to be another great value from this label. Based mostly on Grenache mixed with some Syrah, it has classic notes of dark fruits, damp earth, pepper, and herbs. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy Gigondas that’s going to put a smile on your face over the coming 5-7 years.' Sept.2019
