"Le Claux" ist ein uralter Weinberg mit Ton- und Kalkgrund. Eigentlich hätten die Reben schon 1914 ausgerissen werden sollen, aber der 1. Weltkrieg kam dazwischen und heute existiert er noch immer. Le Claux ist ein majestätischer, langer und klassischer Wein. Ein Referenzwein für Gigondas!

"Another wine that might flirt with perfection is the 2015 Gigondas le Claux. It’s also 100% Grenache and comes from a site just across the road from the Hominis Fides cuvee. The soils here are slightly more limestone-based, and like all of the wine here, it’s fermented with no destemming and aged mostly in old barrels (20% is new). Camphor, currants, incense, graphite, crushed rocks and licorice all soar from this thriller and it has full-bodied richness, an incredible texture and a blockbuster finish. It will have 2-3 decades of overall longevity." (Jeb Dunnuck in Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 228, Dez. 2016)

"I loved the 2015 Gigondas Le Claux from barrel (really loved it), and this beauty doesn’t disappoint from bottle. Checking in as 100% Grenache (100% whole clusters and aged in 20% new barrels) from a site located just across the street from the Hominis Fides vineyard, it offers a heavenly bouquet of blackberries, blueberries, camphor, graphite, and licorice. Sensationally concentrated, rich and opulent, with low acidity, gorgeous purity, and a blockbuster finish, it stays light on its feet and graceful. It’s the greatest vintage of this cuvée to date, and you should buy as much as you can." (Jeb Dunnuck in www.jebdunnuck.com, verkostet am 19.10.2017)
