What the Critics say
‘Tasted prior to its July bottling, the 2016 Gigondas Terrasse du Diable is an outstanding effort. Fine garrigue nuances and piney scents bring depth and complexity to the ripe black cherry and raspberry fruit. Full-bodied, silky, long and elegant, with lingering thyme and savory notes on the finish, it shouldn't be missed.’
'Terrasse du Diable' si sourced from terraces in the most northerly reaches of the Gigondas appellation, in the lieux-dits of Poncet, Thomas, Les Pallières and Terrasse du Diable. This selection comes from parcels at an altitude of 250-400 metres. Most are vineyards are small, isolated plots surrounded by woodland.
When young, the "Terrasse du Diable" cuvée has the minerality, freshness and classic tannins of high-lying terroirs.
