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

There are few wine regions in the world with a history as long and illustrious as that of the Rhone Valley in France. For over two thousand years, wines have been produced in this region, benefited by the excellent, mineral-rich soils of the region, and the varied climate which allows a wide range of grape varietals to grow. The Rhone Valley is now split into two quite separate regions, with the north part being characterized by its cooler, continental climate and the limited number of grape varietals grown, and the southern sub-region being perfect for growing a wide range of grapes, and producing an exciting number of different wine styles. The Rhone Valley is associated with elegant, flavorful wines, and certain grape varietals such as Viognier and Syrah, which are adept at expressing the finer features of their terroir.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
