Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas La Colline 2017
“La Colline” comes from a plot in the “Jasio” vineyard . This slightly south-facing vineyard with a soil of strongly calcareous marl contains the highest parcels of the estate, which give the most powerful, structured wine. For this cuvée, only the 5 first rows of old Grenache sunniest part of this vineyard are vinified separately. All the other fruit goes into the Gigondas “classique”. Here an even lower yield, barely 16hl/ha, 4000 bottles and 240 magnums bottled.
Jeb Dunnuck:“The 2017 Gigondas La Colline comes from a single parcel and is basically all Grenache that was 80% destemmed and brought up in demi-muids. It’s an incredible sexy, opulent wine overflowing with notes of kirsch liqueur, wild strawberries, raspberries, incense and spring flowers. With full-bodied richness, present yet ultra-fine tannins, a voluptuous texture and just an all-around layered seamless, hedonistic yet flawlessly balanced style, it’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 10-15 years. It’s a magical wine from this terrific winemaker. ” 97/100
Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate):“The full-bodied 2017 Gigondas La Colline is evolving beautifully, retaining those exotic licorice and blood orange notes observed last year and fleshing them out with blackberry and purple raspberry fruit. All Grenache, it’s perfumed and floral, boasts a lush, creamy-velvety mouthfeel and finishes with tremendous length. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.” 93+/100
