(65% grenache, 15% each of mourvedre and syrah and 5% cinsault): Opaque purple. Powerful aromas of cherry, blackberry and licorice, with a strong floral quality adding complexity. Weighty bitter cherry and dark berry flavors coat the palate and pick up a touch of warmth on the back. Shows some youthfully strict tannins on the finish, which leaves notes of licorice and cherry behind.

About This Producer


Based in the rustic, quaint and compact village of Cairanne, Domaine Brusset (founded in 1947 by Andre Brusset) wines are the epitome of great Syrah. This 90-hectare estate produces exquisite Gigondas that are at once elegant and jam-packed with layers and textures that belie their humble origins. Andre's son Daniel and grandson Laurent follow traditional vinification methods - including some whole cluster fermentation, which extracts the maximum amount of both complexity and balanced concentration.
