Domaine des Tourelles Gigondas, 2004

Domaine Des Tourelles 2004 Gigondas AOC 750ml Wine BottleThis is a perfectly mature Gigondas, well balanced and ready to enjoy. Mature garnet color. Lifted nose of mature Grenache--red berries, spice and pepper. Rich, smooth and full bodied on the mid palate. Good balance of ripe fruit and acid. A traditional wine with no new oak traits; that's what I like in a Southern Rhone wine. Medium long fruit- and spice-oriented finish. Everything I expect from a Gigondas.

In 2008, this property was purchased by the Perrin family, makers of Chateau
Beaucastel (Chateauneuf du Pape) and other fine Southern Rhone wines. It is now known as Domaine Clos des Tourelles.
