About the Producer

Four generations of winegrowers have worked the family vineyards since 1821. Joel Saurel is deeply attached to the land, believing that soil is the only true master of a wine, and has thus followed the principles of Integrated Farming production since 1996.

95-97 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
The 2018 Gigondas La Louisiane looks to be another terrific example of this cuvée. Raspberries, black cherries, tea leaves and violets all appear on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is rich, velvety and long on the finish.
93-95 Vinous -
Vivid magenta. Highly perfumed raspberry and cherry preserve aromas are complicated by potpourri and exotic spice nuances and a smoky mineral note builds in the glass. Juicy and appealingly sweet, displaying intense red/blue fruit, spicecake and lavender pastille flavors and supple, seamless texture. Balances richness and vivacity smoothly and finishes extremely long and spicy, with harmonious tannins and a resonating echo of candied flowers.
92-94 Jeb Dunnuck -
A bigger, richer wine, the 2018 Gigondas La Louisiane offers medium to full-bodied richness as well as lots of red and black fruits (wild strawberries, raspberries), ground pepper, and violets. A blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, and the balance Syrah and Cinsault, aging in foudre, it has a great mid-palate, ripe tannins, and outstanding length. Due to the mildew, no cuvee Les Souteyrades was produced.
