2015 Domaine Brusset Gigondas 'Les Hauts de Montmirail'
Cases IN BOND(6 bottles) @ £95.00
      Go Back
Tasting Notes:
Beautiful black fruit (50% Grenache, the balance equal parts of Syrah and Mourvedre) grown high in the Dentelles de Montmirail giving this wine plenty of welcome freshness. The 50% new oak used is swallowed up by the cassis and spice-laden palate which has fresh minerality and a superb structure. From 2021.
Drinking Dates:
2020 to 2030
Cépagement:
50% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 25% Mourvedre
Upbringing:
Hand-picked, severe selection, crushing, destalking, cold pre-fermentation and separate fermentation for each variety for 21 days with pigeage and temperature control. Aged in 100% oak casks, around 40% new.
ABV:
14%
Critic Reviews:
"Coming from higher elevation, limestone soils, this stunningly good 2015 Gigondas Les Hauts de Montmirail... is aged in 50% new barrels. Despite the oak elevage, the wood is almost completely covered by loads of cassis and blueberry fruits and it has classic spice and minerality on the finish. This full-bodied, rich, structured cuvee will need short-term cellaring and have 15+ years of overall longevity."91-94/100 (Wine Advocate)
Food:
Rich foods - or, if you like it like this (we do), on its own.

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
