2013 Famille Perrin "Domaine du Clos des Tourelles" Gigondas (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1289132 93 points Wine Spectator

 Shows excellent range, with singed alder and wood spice notes forming the frame. A brambly spine cuts through the core of juicy plum, blackberry and raspberry paste flavors. An alluring black tea hint adds nuance on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2025. 500 cases made. (JM)  (11/2016)

92 points Vinous

 Bright violet. Aromas of ripe red and blue fruits, along with exotic suggestions of smoky Indian spices and potpourri. Sweet and seamless in texture, offering concentrated boysenberry and black raspberry flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Finishes spicy and very long; fine-grained tannins sneak in late to add shape and grip. (JR)  (5/2016)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

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.
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.
