Beautiful deep red dress. On the nose, it offers aromas of undergrowth, red fruit, violet and liquorice. Deep and complex in the mouth, its power is well balanced thanks to a beautiful freshness.
97 Points - Jeb Dunnuck The finest vintage to date, the 2015 Gigondas Le Clos des Tourelles comes from a tiny vineyard located just inside the village of Gigondas. Incorporating a touch of Syrah, this Grenache dominated beauty reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as off the chart notes of black raspberries, black cherries, pepper, garrigue, and tons of that classic Gigondas spice. I wrote “Wow” more than once in my notes and this full-bodied 2015 has ultra-fine tannin, perfect balance, and a stacked mid-palate. Give bottles 2-3 years and drink over the following 15+ years.
94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Slighter richer is the 2015 Gigondas Clos des Tourelles. It shows similar floral notes but fills the mouth with ripe stone fruit and cherries, fine tannins and an incredibly silky finish. All of the Perrin Gigondas show the elegant side of the appellation. Drink now through 2027.
93 Points - Decanter Wild stuff, but in an exciting way. This has pushed ripeness to the limit, and the dense texture is a mixture of raisin, dark cherry and mountainside scrub.
93 Points - Wine Spectator This is still a bit compact, with a juicy core of dark currant and fig paste flavors waiting to unwind, held in check for now by brambly grip and licorice root and singed tobacco leaf notes. Reveals a light tarry echo. Solidly built. Best from 2019 through 2028.
