A fine surprise, Lavau's 2015 Gigondas stands out for its exciting aromas of flowering garrigue and super ripe fruit. It's full-bodied and supple, with a creamy texture and long finish that reprises those enticing herbal notes. It's ready to drink now.

Juicy, with a light brambly undertow amid the juicy blackberry and black currant fruit, accented by licorice snap and singed apple wood notes. Very solid. Best from 2018 through 2025.

Whiffs of black-cherry preserves dusted in sweet spice introduce this unctuously fruity red. It's a straightforward, juicy wine but boldly concentrated with flavors of sun-kissed plums and berries that linger through a long, softly tannic finish. Drink now through 2020. ~ AN
Deep on the nose with pronounced spicy aromas (pepper, nutmeg), typical of the appellation and which accentuate the aromas of blackcurrants and raspberry jam. On the palate, the wine shows a solid yet nicely coated structure, volume and superb length. ~ Winery notes
