Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Des Bosquets Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2013

Rated 91 by Stephen Tanzer
Bright ruby. Sexy, high-pitched red berry, garrigue and blood orange aromas are complemented by a hint of woodsmoke. Pure, incisive and alluringly sweet, offering intense raspberry and floral pastille flavors underscored by a smoky mineral note. Seamless, spicy and focused, finishing with excellent lift and just a suggestion of fine-grained tannins.
Rated 91 by Robert Parker
The classic Gigondas is nothing to sneeze at in 2013. A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the rest Mourvèdre and Cinsault, it has beautiful ripeness in its blackberry and black raspberry fruits, ground herbs, red licorice and spice-driven bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, with sweet, ripe tannin, it has impressive mid-palate depth and should end up being an outstanding effort.

Winery Domaine Des Bosquets

Region: Rhone Valley

The southern French wine region of the Rhone Valley has been home to wine-makers for over two thousand years, with the first grapevines of the region being cultivated in around 600 BCE when the ancient Greeks arrived with their knowledge of viticulture and eagerness to produce more wine. Today, the region is famed around the world for the excellence of its produce, and has dozens of wineries making the most of the wide range of grape varietals which flourish there. In the northern sub-region, the continental climate and brisk winds coming off the Central Massif allow wineries to grow a smaller range of varietals – predominantly Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier, whereas the southern, more Mediterranean sub-region allows far more range. Here, dozens of varietals are grown for the production of white, red and rosé wines, all packed full of flavor and able to express the unique terroir they are grown on.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
