2012 Domaine la Bouïssière

Brilliant ruby-red. Spice-accented scents of fresh red fruits, pepper and potpourri, with a mineral nuance in the background. Vibrant red and dark berry and spice flavors show very good power and building sweetness. This incisive, stony wine finishes with strong thrust, silky tannins and a clinging floral pastille quality.

Beautiful nose. Straightforward and subtle fruit. This shows a wonderful palate of tasty and juicy fruit. A “Grand Vin”, showing chewy fruit with a deep finish.


Thierry and Gilles Faravel's Domaine la Bouïssière in Gigondas is exceptional in many ways, but perhaps apart from the personality of Thierry himself, it is the site of the vineyard, high up under the 'Dentelles de Montmirail' which makes the defining difference. In contrast to the vines being baked on the plains of stones at the foot of the hill, the Bouïssière vines benefit from cooling air at night falling from the high peaks, and the wines retain a freshness and subtle persistence which is very different to the sometimes bludgeoning broadness and alcoholic heat of the wines on the plain. Gilles and Thierry Faravel employ non-interventionalist practices to make wines as naturally as possible, resulting in wines of immense concentration and depth, with true vibrancy and the capacity to age ten to fifteen years.
