More aromatic and complex compared to the Valbelle, the 2012 Gigondas Le Claux exhibits notions of potpourri, leather, graphite and flowers to go with a full-bodied, elegant and pure profile on the palate. It too doesn’t lack for fruit or structure and should have 15-20 years of ultimate longevity.
Opaque ruby. An intensely perfumed bouquet presents candied dark berries, incense, lavender and olive tapenade, along with a bright mineral overtone. Sweet, penetrating blackberry and cherry compote flavors show outstanding depth and clarity, with a spicy quality gaining strength in the glass. Finishes smooth, smoky and very long, with solid tannins adding grip. This one is built for the cellar.
