Described by Jeb Dunnock as “the Chambolle Musigny of the Rhône”, Domaine des Bosquets is home to the first Gigondas plantings of 1376, and is today run by Julien Bréchet. Since taking over the family Domaine in 2006, Julien has made a name for himself as one of the rising stars of Gigondas, with Josh Raynolds asserting that Julien “has quickly climbed to the top tier of not just the Gigondas quality ladder, but that of the whole Rhône Valley”. His wines are known for their finesse, with Julien now picking earlier to preserve freshness, using less oak, and now larger oak, to allow the elegance in the wines to shine through.
This wine is deep ruby red in colour with an expressive nose of red berries, plum, cherries and Kirsch. On the palate, this wine has fine tannins, a fresh acidity with a long finish.
