94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Tasted out of bottle, the 2019 Gigondas is another gem and reminds me a little of the 2010, only with a touch more accessibility at this stage. Classic crème de cassis, sappy garrigue, pepper, and basil notes give way to a medium to full-bodied, pure, concentrated Gigondas revealing ripe tannins, terrific balance, and a great finish. As with the 2020, the blend is 78% Grenache, 14% Syrah, 6% Cinsault, and 2% Mourvèdre that was destemmed and brought up in old foudre. (1/25/22)"

****(*) John Livingstone-Learmonth: "(large barrel) attractive, good, dark red robe; the bouquet reflects sun without excess, has a mulled fruits aroma, cherry and plum, with a herbal tone, dried herbes de Provence, and a reserved sweetness, a touch of meat stock. The palate has a most pleasing texture from the off, glides along, gives Grenache plum fruit and something I find here, juniper, has a suave feel, bingo tannins on board that fit like a velvet glove. It carries intricacies that appeal. There is a little late tenacity as it digs in, meaning it requires a little time. This is a whizzo Gigondas that carries finesse and local feel, is STGT [JLL's shorthand for "soil-to-glass transfer"], with no undue effort attached – this is a swan that really is not paddling below the water. The length is aromatic, the whole of high interest. Its balance means it can be drunk sooner than maybe usual – from 2023."
