2014 Gigondas “Les Racines”

Domaine Les Pallières

2014 Gigondas “Les Racines” Domaine Les Pallières - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


On a cold January morning, I stood in the Racines vineyard after a tasting at Domaine Les Pallières. Daniel Brunier, co-proprietor at Pallières, was explaining the significance of the soil types and the old-vine Grenache that make this vineyard so unique. There’s nothing like a vigneron’s words to help with your understanding of wine. The 2014 Les Racines has a deep core of dark berry fruits, notes of licorice, or réglisse, and a concentrated texture that conveys power with silkiness. If you’re searching for greatness in Gigondas, here’s where to find it. –Steve Waters
