The 1998 Gigondas Cuvee Valbelle, which is made from 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah and aged in 20% new French oak, steps everything up a notch. Starting out reticent on the nose, with ripe blackberry fruit, ground pepper, dried flowers and beef blood-like subtleties, it knocks it out of the park on the palate and has full-bodied richness, beautiful density and a savory finish. Fully mature, yet still youthful and with plenty of life, drink it over the coming 4-5 years. – Jeb Dunnuck – 28-08-2014

(bottled in April; 50% new and 50% one-year-old barriques Deep, bright, saturated ruby. Spicy, sweet aromas of black raspberry, blackberry, cassis, espresso and bitter chocolate. Wonderful sappy sweetness with verve; thick and silky. Hugely ripe yet precise and fine. Tastes sweeter than its 1.5 grams/liter residual sugar would suggest. Not at all porty or over the top. Finishes with big, mouthcoating tannins. A superb Gigondas.
