2014 Domaine la Bouïssière

Grapes Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre
Colour Red
Origin France, Rhône
Village Vacqueyras
ABV 14.5%

The deep ruby colored 2014 Vacqueyras Tradition is a more Syrah-dominated blend of 50% Syrah, 42% Grenache and 8% Mourvèdre. It’s partially destemmed and aged mostly in older barrels. Offering up lots of toasted spice, pepper, black raspberry and obvious minerality, it’s rich and chewy on the palate, with solid purity and high quality tannin. It’s a success in the vintage and will offer plenty of charm over the coming 6-8 years. Drinking range: 2016 - 2024 Rating: 89 Jeb Dunnuck - (Dec 2016)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Domaine la Bouïssière

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.
