THE RHONE REPORT – JEB DUNNUCK – ISSUE # 9 – 25 SEPT 2011 – (91-93) pts

The same blend and elevage as the ’09, the 2010 Domaine les Pallières Gigondas Terrasse du Diable is a deeper, darker rendition of the prior vintage, showing serious minerality that’s buffered by crunchy black fruits, spice, and licorice aromas. Medium to full-bodied with beautiful concentration, perfectly ripe fruit, good acidity, and plenty of length, this will be an outstanding bottle of wine that should have 10-12 years of prime drinking.
