Oh baby is this in the zone. Nose is incredible. Wafting aromas of black olive, black berry fruit with a crystalline purity to it. So dense. So aromatic. Just killing it. Wow. Stunning clarity. Had good luck with Gilles recently. Amazing palate. Just unreal fruit and it’s everywhere! Just saturates with granite infused juicy, lip smacking insanity. So dazzlingly pure. The granite expression is crazy. What a finish. So complex and has that extra that makes it a great vintage. Unreal depth and concentration. Holy shit. This is total genius.

Love me some Gilles . From higest parts of Chaillots vineyard. 2015 is awesome. Still young with dark fruit, dark cherry, plum with back palate of lingering black pepper starting to come out. Inviting tannins paired with Cacio e Pepe. I cant quite put my finger on it. But theres something very Italian about this appellation. 😃
