Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas Reserve
2019 Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas Reserve...$49.99
This delivers a succulently delicious wave of crushed raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors, laced with a lively anise streak and flecked with subtle spice and savory details through the finish. There's a nice underlying energy throughout as well. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Drink now through 2031. 2,500 cases made, 350 cases imported.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator
Leading off the wines from bottle, the 2019 Gigondas Réserve is a beautiful wine that readers should snatch up. A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the balance Mourvèdre and Cinsault that was 70% destemmed, it has a wonderful array of blackberries, black raspberries, Provençal garrigue, and violets. Loaded with sweet fruit, deep, rich, and opulent, it has sweet tannins and no hard edges. Drink it any time over the coming 10-12 years.
Rated 93/100 Jeb Dunnuck
Assembled from 14 different plots (each vinified and aged separately for the first year), the 2019 Gigondas boasts lovely aromas of garrigue, spice, orange zest, licorice, black cherries and raspberries. This vintage is about 60% Grenache (aged in foudres and demi-muids), with a balance of mainly Syrah and Mourvèdre (both aged in smaller barrels). It's full-bodied, rich and velvety, with a long, softly dusty finish. It lacks the easy approachability of the 2018 but is more concentrated and should age particularly well.
Rated 93-95/100 The Wine Advocate
