Reviews & Scores

Packed with ripe red and black berry fruit flavours and stronger savoury notes. Intense and mouthfilling blackcurrant, cassis and some spice flavours with excellent fruit concentration. Succulent and delicious, with soft, grainy tannins. Lovely length with a lingering peppery note. ¿Cayron¿ hit a home run with their 2007 Gigondas (a blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, 14% Syrah, and 1% Mourvedre). I have been tasting (and often buying) this Gigondas since 1979, and it tends to be a wine that repays patience. The 2007 offers a smorgasbord of Provencal aromas, including lavender, ground pepper, incense, Provencal herbs, and black cherries. Full-bodied, earthy, even animalistic, it will be somewhat controversial because of its abundant spice and meatiness. Nevertheless, this stunningly concentrated effort is the finest wine Domaine du Cayron has produced in many years. It should drink well for a decade.¿ 89-92 Robert Parker

Hiding behind the gorgeous sweet fruit, fragrant notes of cordial, cocoa and liquorice emerge with time in the glass. Laser-beam precision is supported by the finest, grippiest tannins imaginable. Those tannins carry the beautifully concentrated fruit to a long, long finish. Effortless and perfectly...

"Brooding yet sensuous, Gravelly Meadow reveals earthy, savoury, meaty notes the nose, along with blackcurrants, blueberries and mulberries. There are subtle hints of herbs, tobacco and cedarwood. Once again, the tannic structure is impeccable and perfectly integrated. This says more about the superb quality of the fruit than it does about the 100% new oak. Gravelly Meadow is Diamond Creek’s...
