Domaine de la Bouissiere, Gigondas, 2014
This domaine is located in one of the prime spots in Gigondas at 350 to 500 metres above sea level, just in front of the stunning Dentelles des Montmirail mountains. The grapes get the most extraordinary exposure to sun, protection from winds, are planted on perfect terroirs and are now on average over 50 years old. The use of cement tanks for maturing the young wine post-fermentation is key to its success, according to the owners of the estate, brothers Gilles and Thierry Faravel. It was their grandfather who began growing grapes there; he inherited the land from his own father who had been a postman and a shepherd. They have 9 hectares of vines in Gigondas and they practice organic farming as a matter of habit rather than as a rule, and the wines seem not to suffer as a result.
