- Dom La Bouissiere Les Amis De La Bouissiere 2013 Product #30545 (In Stock)
From a top Gigondas estate owned by brothers Gilles and Thierry Faravel. The wine starts with Merlot and Caladoc (a rarely seen crossing) grown below Gigondas, close to the Rhone river. Instead of just selling off these grapes, the Faravels decided to blend them with extra Gigondas barrels to make an easy drinking red to share with family and friends: Les Amis.
You’ll love how the tangy black cherry, raspberry, and blackcurrant fruit unfolds across your palate and the way notes of sweet chocolate and savory herb weave in and out. There’s fine purity here and a wonderful texture, rich and velvety on the midpalate and then silky and fine on the finish where notes of warm earth and fine-grained tannins linger nicely. We won’t blame you if you find yourself gulping it down without much thought with pizza, burgers, grilled chicken, etc.. But it’s very long and fine and well worth paying attention to – kind of like a good friend.
