Robert Parker(2008 Vintage) "The 2008 Gigondas Les Racines Vieilles Vignes is composed of 80% Grenache and the rest Cinsault and Syrah from 50- to 70-year-old vines. Revealing more minerality, garrigue, raspberry and strawberry fruit, it is a mid-weight, elegant wine that represents one of the finest Gigondas made in this difficult vintage."
