Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas 'Les Roches' 2019
We have 1 in stock (Inventory is live and accurate)
Le Plateau is Julien’s largest parcel contributing to his Gigondas Réserve, Le Plateau and starting in 2019, Les Roches. Whereas the Le Plateau cuvée features old-vine Mourvèdre from the exposed northwest-facing portion of this site, Les Roches is old-vine Syrah from the eastern edge of this vineyard site. These vines of Syrah are shaded for most of the day by the bordering forest and limestone peaks that form its southern border resulting in a wine that ripens unusually late (for Syrah in the Southern Rhône) and with yields averaging 12hl/ha. Just 200 cases are made in an average vintage.
We ship wine to most states with a $100 minimum order for shipping. We don't ship spirits nor beer.
Weather shipping advisory: Orders placed during times of extreme heat or extreme cold will be held for no charge until more favorable weather returns.
Region: Rhone Valley
The Northern Rhône is home to Syrah-based wines, including the famous Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie appellations. In contrast, the Southern Rhône is known for its blends, such as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, which typically are based on Grenache. Overall, the Rhône Valley offers a rich history and diverse range of wines that are not to be missed.
