"Lots of violets and blue fruit with cinnamon and dark stony aromas. Baking spices, too. On the palate, there’s black fruit and an attractive, bitter-herb kick, with very dense tannins and a powerful, compressed feel. Lithe, juicy blue-fruit finish. Very focused, dense and long."

"The 2017 Gigondas Terrasses Du Diable is rocking stuff and has a mouthwatering sense of salinity and minerality as well as the classic kirsch, garrigue, and peppery aromas this cuvée always possesses. Medium to full-bodied, balanced, and nicely concentrated, with ripe tannins, it's going to keep for 15 years or more."

"From a cool site at 300-400 meters above sea level, the 2017 Gigondas Terrasse du Diable is a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre. It boasts knockout aromas of violets, garrigue and purple raspberries, with an undercurrent of black cherries. It's full-bodied and concentrated, with bright, crunchy acids. The overall impression is of a wine with sharper edges than the harmonious 2016 or 2018. Cellar it a couple of years and then enjoy it over the following decade."
 
91-93 PointsRobert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Singed cedar and dried garrigue notes frame a core of gently mulled plum and blackberry fruit, with a sanguine accent curling around the finish. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Clairette. Drink now through 2027."
