2014 Domaine des Bosquets "La Colline" Gigondas

SKU #1325556 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 One of the gems in the vintage is the 2014 Gigondas La Colline, which is the largest framed and richest cuvee from the estate. Coming from a tiny section of the La Colline lieu-dit, it’s as sexy and layered as they come in the vintage and offers loads of black raspberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with notions of crushed flowers, garrigue and hints of earthy minerality. Medium to full-bodied, deep, layered and concentrated, with terrific tannin quality, drink this sensational 2014 anytime over the coming decade. (JD)  (12/2016)

94 points Wine Spectator

 The beautiful core of kirsch and boysenberry coulis flavors stretches out nicely, carried by lavender, iron and violet notes, accented by dark hints of tobacco and bramble. Everything is seamless, with the lengthy finish echoing pleasantly. Impressive for the vintage. (JM)  (10/2016)

90-92 points Vinous

 Deep red. Sexy, mineral-tinged red berry liqueur and floral pastille scents show excellent clarity and pick up suggestions of garrigue and white pepper with air. Sappy, penetrating and appealingly sweet, offering juicy raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of candied lavender. The mineral and floral notes repeat on the very persistent finish, which is given shape by subtle, fine-grained tannins. (JR)  (5/2016)

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.
