Gigondas - Rhone Valley - France

Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Des Bosquets Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2014

Rated 92 by Robert Parker
One of the wines of the vintage might be the 2014 Gigondas, and at present, it looks just as good as the more expensive La Colline release. Checking in as a blend of 72% Grenache, 18% Syrah and the rest Mourvedre and Cinsault, this beauty will see 18 months in a combination of barrels, demi-muid, and concrete tank before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Notes of sweet black raspberries, red plums, roasted Provencal herbs and macerated cherries all flow from this medium to full-bodied, ripe, forward Gigondas that has beautiful tannin and a clean finish. I suspect it will show beautifully on release, but should also age gracefully on its balance.

Winery Domaine Des Bosquets

Region: Rhone Valley

The Rhone Valley of southern France is a particularly fascinating wine region, with a history that stretches back to at least six hundred BCE, when the ancient Greeks first began cultivating vines there. The region itself is split into two distinct sub-regions, with the northern sub-region being famed for its production of exceptional Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier wines, packed full of interesting character and expressing the terroir found there. The southern sub-region is home to an enormous variety of grapes, and produces red, white and rosé wines, and some of the world's most famous and adored blended wines. The continental climate of the region is ideal for growing grapes, and the winds which blow from the Central Massif help temper the heat in the vineyards, leading to very ripe fruits holding plenty of flavor.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
