From 50+ year old Grenache vines95 Points Josh Raynolds “Vivid ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and pit fruits, potpourri and garrigue, and an exotic spice note emerges in the glass. Stains the palate with sweet raspberry, cherry and lavender pastille flavors that steadily put on weight with air. Conveys a suave blend of power and finesse and finishes extremely long and floral, with fine-grained tannins lending discreet grip.”
Founded in 1900, the Domaine guided by Stephanie Fumoso, is the third generation of the family’s women Vigneron to produce and bottle their own wine. This is old school Gigondas, organic farming, hand harvested, never destemmed, three week cuvaison, and 18 months elevage in old oak foudres. A wonderful, true expression of the southern Rhone!
