Description
Brothers Thierry and Gilles Faravel have co-managed Domaine La Bouïssière since 1990. Their vines cover nine hectares at the feet of the famous Dentelles de Montmirail Tharêtei, making them some of the highest in Gigondas and giving wines with a freshness and elegance rarely found in the southern Rhône.
After hand-harvesting, the bunches are then partially destemmed and gently crushed, before fermentation in concrete or stainless steel vats using indigenous yeasts. Ageing takes places in a range of small oak barrels, 600 litre demi-muids, larger oak foudres and two, recently introduced 17 hl egg-shaped, cement vats.
A magnificent wine produced exclusively from old vine grenache planted in 1956 & 1963 on two terraces high up in the Dentelles de Montmirail. 100% whole bunches with ageing in 225 litre barriques. Rich and spicy with tremendous intensity of fruit and an impressive, close-knit texture. Finishes sweet and long. Drink 2026-2032.
