Original price was: £270.00.Current price is: £198.00.

This fabulous wine is made by undoubtedly one of the finest estates in Gigondas. And because it is therefore outside the boundaries of the famous Châteauneuf du Pape appellation, the benefits to us of course are enormous—this Domaine des Bosquets 2020 is extremely well priced through the Club—and the Tasting Panel highly recommend it.

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.

It is gloriously and typically rich, ripe and full of fruit, a wine of true strength of character shining through its saturated ripeness. The wine has layers and layers of structure and complexity. Its red berry flavours are beautifully balanced and it has a perfect tannic structure.

The wine is carefully made by the Brechet family on their 26-hectare estate near the Dentelles de Montmirail Mountains. Several important critics have rated the wine highly: Writes Jeb Dunnock (Robert Parker): ‘Don’t miss these incredible wines!’ Our Wine Tasting Panel recommend it highly to our Members.

Excellent with lamb, game, turkey, beef, quail and duck.
