2017 Gigondas ‘Le Lieu Dit’, Domaine des Bosquets, Rhône In OWC (6 bottles)

£270.75 inc. VAT

A top drawer Gigondas from an outstanding producer beautifully presented in its own wooden 6 bottle case.

It was this Domaine that was home to the first Gigondas plantings of 1376. The winery is now run by Julien Bréchet and is one of the top estates in the whole of the Rhône.

Julien has 26 hectares of vines, which are up to 75 years old and lie at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail. ‘Le Lieu Dit’ was the first single vineyard wine produced at Domaine des Bosquets in 2009. This northwest-facing vineyard is planted on sandy soils and measures just 1.8 hectares. It is a cooler site, which gives poise, elegance and a hallmark freshness to the finished wine. Julien is in the process of converting his vineyards to organic and biodynamic viticulture.

A glorious wine that is deep ruby red in colour with an expressive nose of red berries, sweet liquorice, plum and cherries. On the palate it has smooth and mellow tannins with a long, lingering finish. Complex with underlying power, it also has great finesse and is one of the greatest Grenache based wines in the world.
