2012 Domaine Brusset Gigondas 'Le Grand Montmirail' (37.5cl)
Single Bottles (37.5cl) @ £8.00
      Go Back
Tasting Notes:
Laurent Brusset’s "Le Grand Montmirail" is a fruit forward wine without too much of the appellation's tendancy towards rusticity (although it is clearly a Gigondas wine). This 2010 is more tannic than some recent vintages at this stage but it has excellent fruit and acidity. One for the medium term.
Drinking Dates:
2015 to 2020
Cépagement:
70% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 10% Cinsault (30hl/ha).
Soil:
Stony terraced vineyards on alluvions and molasse facing full south.
Upbringing:
Hand-picked and selected following strict ripeness checks. Crushing, destalking, no yeast added. Fermentation in vats for 15 days with twice daily "pigeages". Aged 70% in tanks and 30% in 2 to 4 years old "demi-muids".
ABV:
13.5%
Critic Reviews:
"Classic, rustic and chewy with textbook toasted spice, black fruits and scorched earth, it's medium to full bodied and concentrated with ample texture. It's an impressive Gigondas to drink over the coming 7-8 years" 91/100 (Wine Advocate)

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
