2007 Patrick Lesec "Domaine La Roubine" Gigondas

SKU #1059293

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.

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.

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.
