- Dom La Bouissiere Vacqueyras 2010 Product #26540 (In Stock)
A powerhouse, but in perfect balance. Drinking well already.
“Opaque purple. Spicy dark berry and cherry aromas are complicated by candied licorice, tobacco and musky herbs. Fleshy but nicely focused cherry and blackberry flavors provide impressive palate coverage, picking up notes of vanilla and cola with air. Finishes with very good cling and power, the licorice note repeating.”International Wine Cellar 90 points
“From this tiny 7.2-acre estate, the 2010 Vacqueyras (60% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre aged in neutral wood and tank) is a sexy, opaque purple-colored offering with low acidity, lots of succulent red and black fruits intermixed with notes of licorice, incense and underbrush. Its opulence, fleshiness and naked expression of exuberant fruit gives it a flamboyant, consumer-friendly personality. It’s a big wine, but the fruit is so delicious and ripe, it is impossible to resist. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.”Wine Advocate 90 points
- Dom La Bouissiere Gigondas Classique 2010 Product #26538 (In Stock)
Our best-selling Gigondas every year; a classic.
“72% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 3% Mourvedre, raised in a combination of tanks and barriques. Bright violet color. Intense, highly perfumed aromas of black raspberry, spicecake and lavender, with a bright mineral quality adding vibrancy. Rich and expansive but fresh, offering vibrant red and dark berry flavors that show a seamless texture and impressive focus. Finishes spicy, floral and long.”International Wine Cellar 91 points
“The 2010 Gigondas is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, with 30% aged in tank and the rest in 1- to 4-year-old small oak barrels. It exhibits a lot of earth, mineral, kirsch and raspberry fruit in a medium to full-bodied, cool climate style.” Wine Advocate 90 points
- Dom La Bouissiere Gigondas La Font De Tonin 2010 Product #26539 (In Stock)
Super-concentrated and rich, this needs a little air now and will be best after 2014.
“79% Grenache and 21% Mourvedre. Bright purple. Highly aromatic nose combines black raspberry, cherry and cola. Bright, intense and sharply focused, with intense dark berry, spice and cola flavors firmed by brisk acidity. Shows increasing breadth and sweetness--and a sexy floral nuance--as it opens up with air. Builds power toward the back, finishing with silky tannins and assertive spiciness.”International Wine Cellar 93 points
“A sensational effort, the opaque ruby/purple-tinged 2010 Gigondas La Font du Tonin is a deeper, richer, more structured and backward effort revealing full body as well as loads of incense, flower, blueberry, black raspberry and bouquet garni notes. Very perfumed with stunning purity and overall equilibrium, this big, well-balanced, intriguing Gigondas should drink well for 12-15+ years.”Wine Advocate 92-94 points
