Famille Perrin, Gigondas 'Domaine du Clos des Tourelles' 2016Regular price €85.00
‘…off the chart notes of black raspberries, black cherries, pepper, garrigue, and tons of that classic Gigondas spice. I wrote “Wow” more than once in my notes…‘
Jeb Dunnuck, 2017
Intense cigar box and violet aromas with mineral hints introduce a pure and powerful wine, vibrant with berry fruit and soft liquorice flavours. The silky tannins are not intrusive, making this complex wine from a cool microclimate and a complicated vintage a very elegant Gigondas, ideal for keeping but already magnificent.
This domaine was the site of the very first building outside the ramparts of Gigondas, and the current structure dates from the seventeenth century, its turrets giving the plot its name.
The nine hectare vineyards are planted chiefly with Grenache, the remaining twenty per cent given to plantings of Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvèdre.
