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

Kermit inspecting wine barrels

For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
