VINOUS - Josh Reynolds
GIGONDAS 'Louis Bernard' 2015 - 90/100 - 'Aromas of ripe cherry and singed plum on the deeply scented nose. Lush and open-knit, offering warm black and blue fruit flavors that pick up a peppery nuance with air. In a forward, palate-coating style; smooth tannins shape the smoke-tinged finish.'Josh Reynolds, Sept.2017.
VACQUEYRAS 'Louis Bernard' 2015- 89/100 - 'Pungent aromas and flavors of cherry and licorice; a peppery nuance adds lift and spiciness. Firm, focused bitter cherry and cassis flavors show good depth, while tangy acidity adds cut. Aeration brings out a deeper cassis note, which lingers on the youthfully tannic finish.' Aug.2017
