2019 Gigondas “Racines”

Domaine Les Pallières
Discount Eligible $45.00
SOLD OUT

Intense in both color and character, the most dense and vinous I can ever remember from this cuvée. If you need proof that density can be elegant and smooth all at once, look no further. Intense, ripe peach fruit with distinguished tannins.

Chris Santini

Inspiring Thirst

I want you to realize once and for all: Even the winemaker does not know what aging is going to do to a new vintage; Robert Parker does not know; I do not know. We all make educated (hopefully) guesses about what the future will bring, but guesses they are. And one of the pleasures of a wine cellar is the opportunity it provides for you to witness the evolution of your various selections. Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
