« Ce négoce sort un Gigondas Secrets des Dentelles 2016 bien bâti, sur un assemblage de 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah et 10% Mourvèdre élevé en cuves béton et barriques. Il est mi-corsé à corsé, sans la volupté de certains autres, mais avec de vif arômes de cerise, une sensation profilée en bouche et une finale respectable.» (Wine Advocate 2018 - Robert Parker) Un vin qui illustre ce que la Vallée du Rhône méridionale peut offrir de mieux.
