Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 87-89

(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.

This was heavy, dense and dark-fruited. It hardly budged through the course of the evening, even after two hours of aeration in a wide decanter. Not sure how well this will age, but tonight's showing was unimpressive.

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.

Wine Varietal: Rhone Blend

"Rhone blends" are typically red wines comprised of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre in varying proportions. However, the red blends may also include any of the traditional varieties grown in the Rhone Valley such as the 14 allowed in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation. There are also Rhone blend roses which use the same varieties as their red counterparts. White Rhone blends are typically some combination of Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Grenache blanc, and lesser varieties.
