2007 Patrick Lesec "Domaine La Roubine" Gigondas
93 points Robert Parker: "A superstar of the appellation, is the 2007 Gigondas Domaine La Rubine. A blend of 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 5% Mourvedre, it exhibits an inky/blue/purple color along with a gorgeous bouquet of acacia flowers intermixed with blueberries, dark raspberries, black cherries, and a hint of plums. The wine hits the palate with full-bodied power, gorgeous density, the vintage’s freshness and acids, and an impressive razor-like precision. There is enough tannin and extract that the wine will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring. It should drink well for 12-15 years." (10/09) 14.5% abv.
