2019, Domaine Brusset, GIGONDAS, 'Les Hauts de Montmirail'
From Brusset's higher-altitude plantings, the 2019 Gigondas Les Hauts de Montmirail shows what appears to be a bit of oak on the nose, nicely fitting into place among purple raspberries, garrigue and even a bit of cassis. Full-bodied and impressively concentrated, it boasts a plush, velvety feel on the palate, sumptuous tannins and a lingering, richly textured finish. It's a super Gigondas to drink over the next decade or so. 95/100 Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate.
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2030.
