2007 Selection Laurence Feraud Gigondas

SKU #1330368 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The brilliant 2007 Gigondas exhibits loads of crushed rock, blueberry, and boysenberry characteristics. A cool-climate style has given the wine a certain restraint, but the levels of concentration, depth, and richness are impressive. Drink this beauty over the next decade. (RP)  (10/2009)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Very sleek and racy, displaying deliciously tangy damson plum, mulled raspberry and black tea notes all racing along silky, but substantial, tannins. Lingering mesquite and iron notes add length to the finish. (JM)  (10/2010)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 From the négociant line of Laurence Féraud of Domaine du Pegau in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this is a clean and modern Gigondas that's thoroughly delicious. A blend of grenache.  (2/2011)

Vinous

 Bright purple. Lively red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by spicy herbs and flowers. Energetic red fruit flavors are framed by dusty tannins, which fade into the fruit on the back end. A bitter licorice quality comes out with air and lingers on the spicy, nicely persistent finish. This drinks well now. (JR)  (1/2010)

Rhone Blends

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.
