93. Dark and focused, with cassis, blackberry and black currant flavors spliced together, racing along atop mouthwatering bramble, lavender and rosemary accents. A bright iron streak pierces the finish, adding life and range. Best from 2019 through 2027. 2,600 cases made.
89. The beautiful cherry fruit of the Domaine Les Pallieres 2015 Gigondas Terrasse du Diable is accompanied by ample weight and silky tannins. Unfortunately, the licorice-tinged finish also comes with a sensation of warmth from elevated alcohol.
94. The 2015s are also brilliant, and if not for the 2016s, I’d say best yet. The 2015 Gigondas Terrasses du Diable sports a ruby color as well as considerable polish and elegance in its blackberry, black cherry, garrigue and mineral-drenched style. Full-bodied, concentrated, loaded with spice, and beautifully textured, it’s a knockout 2015 to drink over the coming decade.
(89-92). A bigger, richer barrel sample, with some chewy, meaty, dark fruit characteristics and lots of roasted herbs, the 2015 Gigondas Terrasses de Diable is full-bodied and supple, with sweet tannin and lots of fruit.
