Domaine les Pallieres Gigondas les Racines 2015
This is the finest estate in Gigondas and certainly one of the finest estates in the Southern Rhône. 25 hectares of vines, with an average age of 65-70 years, sitting in its own elevated hidden bowl at between 250-400m, facing north west and surrounded by 100 hectares of wild garrigue. The very old vine ‘Racines’ cuvée are from vines with an average of 100 years and are grown around the house on clay and limestone soils.
This wine is vivid ruby in colour. On the nose, mineral and spice-accented blueberry and black raspberry aromas that show excellent clarity and pick up an exotic five-spice powder flourish as the wine opens up. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering appealingly sweet dark berry and spicecake flavours that show a suave blend of depth and energy. Finish is very long and silky, with slow-building tannins adding shape and gentle grip.
Perfect pairing for Cottage pie, lamb stew or venison.
