The Gigondas 2016 impresses The Wine Advocate and receives a rating of 94 Points!!

Domaine des Pasquiers receives an astounding 94 Points for their Gigondas 2016 as well as an incredible review from the Wine Advocate.

This traditional-styled winery is run by the brothers Jean-Claude and Philippe Lambert who privilege organic farming techniques. The estate covers 87 hectares, divided into different appellations: Gigondas, Côtes du Rhône Villages Sablet, Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu, AOP Côtes du Rhône and Vin de Pays de Vaucluse. The domaine’s cellar has a capacity of 8,000 hectoliters for the vinification and aging of the wines with a majority of concrete tanks.


“Domaine des Pasquiers has fashioned a 2016 Gigondas that’s capable of embarrassing many Châteauneufs. It starts off with some tarry, cola scents, then reveals supremely ripe red raspberries on the full-bodied, supple palate. With its firm tannins and acids, it should prove reasonably long-lived, despite being almost approachable.” – Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate
