Domaine des Bosquets Réserve Gigondas 2018
- Rich, full-bodied
This is one to get excited about, mofo! We are talking next level in terms of quality, value and of course, taste. Les Bosquets in Gigondas have six centuries of wine-growing history, with the first vines planted in 1376. They are absolute masters of the craft, with an deep connection to the land of the greanche-famed region. This cuvee is a blend of some of their best sites, made with meticulous attention to detail, including a longer ageing period than many wines - first in barrel, and then coming together as a blend in cement. The wine is dense, rich and enrapturing. Joe Czerwinski’s quote below will give you an idea of what to expect.
“Smart money will be chasing the 2018 Gigondas, which is nearly as stunning as the special cuvées this year. A blend of 45% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, it boasts complex aromas of garrigue, cola, blood orange and raspberries. Full-bodied, silky-textured and long on the finish, it should drink well on release and for at least a decade thereafter.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
