2019 Domaine de la Bouissiere, Gigondas 12x75cl

Under the vigilant and inspired stewardship of Thierry Faravel, Domaine de la Bouïssière has become one of the leading producers in Gigondas, producing classic, age worthy and expressive wines of... great balance. The 2020 is a traditional blend of three-quarter Grenache with Syrah and Mourvèdre making up the balance. The 60 year-old vines deliver an intense wine with dried Mediterranean herbs lifting the juicy black cherry aromatics. This is superb now and will improve over the next 3 to 5 years.

2019 Domaine de la Bouissiere, Gigondas, Font De Tonin 12x75cl

"This great wine is the worthy representative of the “mountain” of Gigondas. Composed of 80 percent Grenache and the rest Mourvèdre, this dense, structured, textured yet fresh wine captures... fully the character of grapes produced by our oldest vines, growing on the limestone scree at the base of the Dentelles de Montmiral, between 300 and 500 meters in altitude. It too is vinified on whole clusters. ‘Le Font de Tonin,’ completely aged in barrel (a small part of which is new oak), shortly after bottling shows no marked presence of wood at all, revealing a wine that is powerful and rich yet pure and fresh, wrapped in smooth tannins. Its ability to evolve beautifully over the years is remarkable." Domaine La Boussiere tasting note

Compact nose of sweet, spicy... black fruit, bay leaf and olive; on the palate liquorice, juicy black and red fruit; power, rich, pure and deeply expressive, refined tannins finishing long with great precision and freshness.

2020 Domaine de la Bouissiere, Gigondas 12x75cl

Old vines and elevation provide an invigorating elegance and freshness on a nose of juicy, red fruit grenache, leading to equally juicy, bitter, black syrah fruit on a palate that shows at once raciness, great power and depth. Wonderfully interwoven tannis, ong, peppery, juicy finish. An exceptionally unique Gigondas.

2020 Famille Perrin, Gigondas, Domaine du Clos des Tourelles 6x75cl

JR17
"Mid crimson. Has the garrigue and gently floral aroma of the L'Argnée Gigondas 2020. A little bit toasty too. Deliciously scented. Firm and serious on the palate. Finely dry tannins. A restrained style compared with the Famille Perrin La Gille Gigondas 2020." 17 pts., www.jancisrobinson.com
