Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas Lieu Dit - 6 Bottles

(Includes 6 units $87.33 each)

Product description

First elaborated in 2009, Le Lieu Dit is a parcel of old-vine Grenache planted on sand with north and northwestern exposure. At 210 meters in elevation and surrounded by forest, this site is late-ripening and low-yielding, averaging only 16hl/ha. It is fermented with 30% whole clusters and by natural yeasts and is aged in only neutral 600L French oak demi-muids.

A ruby-purple color. A fresh and expressive nose, on small red berries, morello cherry, cherry, licorice sweet, plum and kirsch. Tannins of great finesse and freshness, all the typicity of the sands.

Also all Grenache brought up in demi-muids, the 2020 Gigondas Le Lieu-Dit is in the same qualitative ballpark but shows a very different style. Coming from a cooler, sandy terroir near the domaine, it's all about finesse and elegance and is full-bodied, with lots of ripe strawberry and cherry fruits, notes of dried flowers, spice, and loamy earth, ultra-fine tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish. It's another insanely good wine from this estate that will have two decades of longevity.

Friendly and open, this also shows impressive concentration to the ripe cherry, warm red licorice and cassis edged in vanilla. A stylish wine with terrific Grenache fruit purity, this also has character and grace. Delivers dried herbs, snappy acidity and fine-grained tannins, which keep the finish clean and vibrant. Drink now through 2035.
