Double 96
Point Gigondas

​,
w
hile
I’m tempted to begin with the fascinating story
and growing hype behind today’s wine, I
can’t resist diving into the contents of the
bottle: Simply put, this is one of the most seductive, savage,
soil-driven examples of Gigondas I’ve ever
encountered. Here are a couple of reasons why:

(1) It’s crafted by Domaine
Les Pallières, owned and operated by Vieux Telegraph’s
Brunier family, a globally recognized wine-world
icon.

(2)
It’s from the estate’s oldest vines, on limestone and
clay.

It also provides value,
given how it’s made by a family that produces iconic wines
demanding high triple-digit figures. So if you are lover of
epic Rhône blends, today’s bottle is on par with the
very best of the region. You’ll want to get a case of this to
augment your current holdings.

Only 90 bottles available
now.


Gigondas Les Racines by Domaine Les Pallières
2016

“It shows the balance
and freshness, as well as richness, that makes this vintage so
compelling, and while it needs 2-3 years of bottle age, it’s a
profound, sensationally complex, layered wine readers shouldn’t
miss!”

“Detailed
texture, the noble, long tannins cloaked in wild, red plums and
berries. Terrific freshness here. Wow. Drink or hold.”

Gigondas Les Racines by Domaine Les Pallières 2016

“The old vines cuvee is
the 2016 Gigondas Les Racines and comes from the oldest vines of
the estate located around the domaine. The soils here lie around
200-300 feet in elevation and are a mix of broken limestone and
clay, and the resulting wine is always blacker fruited, dense, and
concentrated. Blackcurrants, black olives, exotic spices, and
crushed rock notes all flow to a powerful, concentrated, tannic
Gigondas that has remarkable purity and elegance. It shows the
balance and freshness, as well as richness, that makes this vintage
so compelling, and while it needs 2-3 years of bottle age, it’s a
profound, sensationally complex, layered wine readers shouldn’t
miss!”

“Very
complete and complex wine that has intensity and elegance.
Raspberry and rose-like perfume, this has a long, red-fruit core
with dark spices wrapped deep into the heart of the palate.
Detailed texture, the noble, long tannins cloaked in wild, red
plums and berries. Terrific freshness here. Wow. Drink or
hold.”
