Personal wine advice
Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas 2016
The Gigondas “classique” is a blend of the various plots the estate owns in “climats” such as Les Hautes Garrigues, Les Routes, Les Plantes, Les Bosquets and Jasio. That gives a blend of around 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% each Mourvèdre and Cinsault. It’s a magnificent, powerful, creamy, varietal wine that’s best forgotten in the peak years anyway and can keep for at least 15 years. On the other hand, the 2013 is already truly delectable…!
Hoe interessant en leerrijk Bosquet’s parcellaires ook zijn, voor ons blijft de Réserve” hier de te kopen wijn, de échte Gigondas en bovendien een wijn die bijzonder veel smaak per EURO levert!
Vinous (Josh Raynolds): “Vivid ruby-red. Lively, expansive red berry, floral pastille and white pepper scents, along with suggestions of garrigue and smoky minerals. Sweet, focused and seamless in the mouth, offering juicy raspberry, spicecake and lavender flavors that deepen steadily on the back half. Clings with very good authority on the gently tannic finish and leaves succulent floral and herb notes behind.” 92/100
Wine Advocate (Joe Czerwinski): “Hints of garrigue accent raspberries and Rainier cherries in the 2016 Gigondas. This blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault is full-bodied and supple, with no hard edges, just lovely fruit. Long, seamless and delicious for drinking over the next 6-7 years, it’s a terrific introduction to the fruit-forward style at this estate. Tasted twice with consistent notes.” 92/100
