Domaine de Boissan Gigondas Vieilles Vignes 2017
|Region||France, Rhone, Gigondas|
|Brand||Domaine de Boissan|
Slightly more classic in style, terrific notes of darker fruits, ground pepper, garrigue, incense, and Asian spices emerge from the 2017 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes. It's a layered, ripe, beautifully polished Gigondas that has the vintage's opulence and sweet fruit yet stays classic, complex, and flawlessly balanced. It's a brilliant Gigondas that can be drunk today or cellared for 10-15 years. This cuvée is the same 80/20 split of Grenache and Syrah yet is aging in a mix of once- and twice-used barrels.
Brilliant violet. Powerful red and blue fruit preserve, licorice and exotic spice aromas are complemented by a building suggestion of garrigue. Broad and fleshy on the palate, offering appealingly sweet black raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. Firms up and turns spicy on a very long, youthfully tannic, sharply defined finish that leaves a sweet Chambord note behind.
This is a rich, lusciously textured blend of Grenache (80%) and Syrah (20%) sourced from clay and limestone terraces. Aged partially in oak, it's a generous, deeply concentrated wine packed with flavors of crème de cassis and cherry preserve. Softly tannic and spiced by heady notes of clove and vanilla, it's an immediately welcoming wine that's best enjoyed now through 2027.
