2012 Famille Perrin "Domaine du Clos des Tourelles" Gigondas

SKU #1202441 94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Another prodigious Gigondas who’s only problem is that there’s not enough of it, the 2012 Gigondas Clos des Tourelles (95% Grenache and 5% Syrah) comes from a vineyard just outside of the village. Slightly darker in character than the Vieilles Vignes, it boasts awesome aromatics of cassis, toasted spice, licorice, ground herbs and massive minerality. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated Gigondas that has beautiful tannin structure, notable freshness and building richness that comes through on the finish. Rich and textured, as well as elegant, it’s a rock-star 2012 that will have two decades of longevity. (JD) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright purple. A highly aromatic bouquet evokes spicy black raspberry and cherry scents, along with hints of garrigue and spicecake. Stains the palate with sweet red fruit and floral flavors, picking up a stony element with air. Shows hints of darker fruits on the strikingly persistent finish, which is framed by smooth, slow-building tannins. (JR) Inner quote mark (5/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A ripe, silky style, with lush boysenberry and plum confiture notes that glide along, maintaining definition as hints of fruitcake, anise and chocolate move throughout. Drink now through 2022. (JM) Inner quote mark (8/2015)
