2018 Gigondas, Clos des Tourelles, La Famille Perrin, Rhône
The Tourelles Estate is located below the village of Gigondas. Its vineyard, comprising a "closed" directly attached to the property and the village, is oriented northwest and enjoys a cool micro-climate allowing late harvests giving wines of unique elegance and aromatic finesse. With its characteristic aromas of violet and liquorice, its finesse and elegance, this wine is a "civilized" version of Gigondas. This parcel cuvée made exclusively from old vines will delight any wine lover in the Rhone.
"It's just a great juice (...) So fine, so elegant, so long, it almost left me speechless... " R. Parker
