2015 Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas

SKU #1333828 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Looking at the classic cuvee, the 2015 Gigondas is a wine that readers should buy by the case. A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the balance Mourvèdre and Cinsault, it offers up gorgeous notes of black raspberry, fruit tart, spice and incense in a medium to full-bodied, ultra pure, seamless style that just begs to be drunk. It will keep for over a decade. Readers wanting to get a hold of the best of the 2015 vintage need to latch onto these wines from Domaine des Bosquets. This estate has been brought up to the pinnacle of Gigondas, and the Southern Rhône, by the talent and drive of the Brechet family, namely the young Julien Brechet, and consultant Philippe Cambie... Their traditional cuvee is a normal blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the rest Mourvèdre and Cinsault, from all the estate parcels, and it’s aged in concrete tanks and older barrels.

 This drips with lush raspberry and boysenberry coulis flavors, inlaid with anise, black tea and violet accents. The long finish is silky and very persistent, with a light chalky thread for contrast. Drink now through 2030. (JM)  (11/2017)

90-92 points Vinous

 Vivid ruby. Highly perfumed red fruit, potpourri and peppery spice scents show very good clarity. Sappy and precise on the palate, offering sweet raspberry and floral pastille flavors and a hint of spicecake. Closes on a smoky mineral note, displaying silky tannins and strong, floral-driven persistence. (JR)  (9/2017)

 Moving to the 2015s, the classic 2015 Gigondas offers a charming, elegant, yet nicely textured personality to go with lots of black raspberries, spice, incense and dried flower aromas and flavors. It’s a beautiful, classic Gigondas that has sweet tannin and a decade or more of prime drinking. The blend is 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 7% Mourvèdre and the balance Cinsault, mostly destemmed and aged in a mix of foudre, barrels, and tank. (JebDunnuck.com)  (10/2017)

I love Gigondas. While it's sister appellation Chateauneuf-du-pape typically steals most of the spotlight, I've continually been shocked by the quality and sheer beauty of these wines--at usually half the price. The Domaine des Bosquets comes from a single, 26 hectare vineyard at the top of the appellation, overlooking Rhone. Full of black fruits on the nose, with touches of vanilla and molasses, it follows up with lifted fruit, tons of blueberry tones and nice, crispy tannins. Rustic and lifted enough to be Gigondas, but sleek and polished enough for anyone to enjoy. I can't recommend these wines enough.

Rhone Blends



- 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.


- 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.
