Looking at the classic cuvee, the 2015 Gigondas is a wine that readers should buy by the case. A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the balance Mourvèdre and Cinsault, it offers up gorgeous notes of black raspberry, fruit tart, spice and incense in a medium to full-bodied, ultra pure, seamless style that just begs to be drunk. It will keep for over a decade. Readers wanting to get a hold of the best of the 2015 vintage need to latch onto these wines from Domaine des Bosquets. This estate has been brought up to the pinnacle of Gigondas, and the Southern Rhône, by the talent and drive of the Brechet family, namely the young Julien Brechet, and consultant Philippe Cambie... Their traditional cuvee is a normal blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the rest Mourvèdre and Cinsault, from all the estate parcels, and it’s aged in concrete tanks and older barrels.

This drips with lush raspberry and boysenberry coulis flavors, inlaid with anise, black tea and violet accents. The long finish is silky and very persistent, with a light chalky thread for contrast. Drink now through 2030. (JM) (11/2017)

Vivid ruby. Highly perfumed red fruit, potpourri and peppery spice scents show very good clarity. Sappy and precise on the palate, offering sweet raspberry and floral pastille flavors and a hint of spicecake. Closes on a smoky mineral note, displaying silky tannins and strong, floral-driven persistence. (JR)  (9/2017)

Moving to the 2015s, the classic 2015 Gigondas offers a charming, elegant, yet nicely textured personality to go with lots of black raspberries, spice, incense and dried flower aromas and flavors. It’s a beautiful, classic Gigondas that has sweet tannin and a decade or more of prime drinking. The blend is 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 7% Mourvèdre and the balance Cinsault, mostly destemmed and aged in a mix of foudre, barrels, and tank. (JebDunnuck.com)  (10/2017)
