2014 Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas

SKU #1300278 90 points Vinous

 Bright violet. An expressive bouquet evokes ripe red and dark berries, peppery spices, potpourri and a hint of_ garrigue_. Coats the palate with juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter and more lively with air. Rich but energetic, displaying good finishing focus and gentle tannic grip. (JR)  (5/2016)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Offers a polished, pure feel, with high-pitched cherry and damson plum fruit at the core, inlaid with violet and lavender notes. The sleek, focused finish shows a bright iron hint. Drink now through 2022. (JM)  (10/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Leading off the 2014s from bottle, the 2014 Gigondas is elegant and silky, with lots of red fruits (strawberry, raspberry), spice and floral nuances in a medium-bodied, supple and elegant style. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years. (JD)  (12/2016)

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
