2020 Gigondas “Racines”

Domaine Les Pallières
Discount Eligible $52.00
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

Sampling wine out of the barrel.

When buying red Burgundy, I think we should remember:

1. Big wines do not age better than light wine.
2. A so-called great vintage at the outset does not guarantee a great vintage for the duration.
3. A so-called off vintage at the outset does not mean the wines do not have a brilliant future ahead of them.
4. Red Burgundy should not taste like Guigal Côte-Rôtie, even if most wine writers wish it would.
5. Don’t follow leaders; watch yer parking meters.
