DOMAINE LA HAUTE MARONE Gigondas Le Cru des Dentelles de Montmirail 2013
91 points, $32
This is showing some mature hints, with alder and smoldering tobacco details emerging from the core of gently steeped red and black currant fruit. A brambly structure and a tarry echo check in on the finish, giving this an old-school feel. Drink now through 2019. 2,200 cases made. —James Molesworth
