|Partly oak-aged blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre|
|Powerful and sultry with ripe fruit and spiciness|
|A beautiful meal and storage wine|
Domaine la Bouissière has traditionally been almost synonymous with Gigondas. Thierry and Gilles Faravel enjoy an international reputation for their impressive wines from this South Rhône cru. Since Gilles' marriage in 2001, the family has also owned some beautiful plots in neighboring Vacqueyras, thanks to his wife's inheritance. And there too, Thierry and Gilles make an astonishing wine.
Compared to their Gigondas vineyards, those in Vacqueyras are a lot more sloping and less steep. The soil consists mainly of sand and clay and here and there you will find 'galets', the famous flat round stones that also characterize vineyards in Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
Grenache is (just like in the Gigondas) the main ingredient of the Vacqueyras, but to ensure that the wine does not become too heavy and ripe-sweet, Thierry opts for a larger proportion of Syrah and Mourvèdre in the blend. The grapes are partly destemmed and partly processed in whole bunches. Once fermented, the wine matures in concrete vats and used wooden barrels.
It produces a classic Vacqueyras, with ripe, sun-baked red fruit, spiciness, a full body and a firm structure. This makes it a perfect accompaniment to hearty, tasty dishes and an excellent wine to store.
