"Dark, charismatic and bewitching with complexity, minerality, and notes of garrigue scrub and spices, the Domaine des Bosquets red wine generally shows great purity of fruit. The freshness born out of the altitude makes it approachable in its youth, and its tannic structure becomes more amenable as it ages, over 10 to 15 years." —winemaker

Blend: 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault
"Intense, with very pure, focused raspberry, boysenberry and blueberry fruit flavors that pump along, while a racy graphite note bolts down the finish. Alluring spice and black tea accents hang in the background. The finish features subtle, latent grip. Rock-solid. Best from 2016 through 2021. 500 cases imported." —James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

"The classic Gigondas is nothing to sneeze at in 2013. A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the rest Mourvèdre and Cinsault, it has beautiful ripeness in its blackberry and black raspberry fruits, ground herbs, red licorice and spice-driven bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, with sweet, ripe tannin, it has impressive mid-palate depth and should end up being an outstanding effort." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate

"Bright ruby. Sexy, high-pitched red berry, garrigue and blood orange aromas are complemented by a hint of woodsmoke. Pure, incisive and alluringly sweet, offering intense raspberry and floral pastille flavors underscored by a smoky mineral note. Seamless, spicy and focused, finishing with excellent lift and just a suggestion of fine-grained tannins." —Josh Raynolds, Vinous
