Claux, meaning closed place, from the latin CLAUSUM. This 1.8 hectares vineard dates to in 1902 and comprises St. Cosme's oldest vines. Soils are composed with yellow limestone-clay and small gravels. It always produces the most Burgundian-styled Gigondas, because of its finesse and complexity.
97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck
The 2019 Gigondas Le Claux offers more minerality as well as structure and is another 2019 that’s going to benefit from bottle age. A complex bouquet of redcurrants, loamy soil and dried garrigue, camphor, and licorice emerges from the glass, and this beauty has building tannins, flawless balance and a great, great finish. The 2019s look to be on another level, and my money is on this being another truly special vintage from this estate. These are gorgeous wines across the board, and I certainly have plenty in my personal cellar.
97 Point Score by The Wine Spectator
This is packed together, with taut iron cables providing a platform for mouthwatering bitter plum, cassis and blackberry reduction flavors. Sage, bay tobacco and warm earth notes play equally important roles, adding superior range and depth. Everything pulls together through the finish, though the end point takes some time to reach. Best from 2025 through 2040.
