Ravoire Gigondas - 6 bottle case red wine
Tasting notes: The Gigondas Olivier Ravoire is a relatively modern style effort made from 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah which has around 20% of the blend in new barrels. Its deep purple/ruby colour is followed by impressive cassis, spice and sweet oak notes. Medium to full-bodied on the taste, with a forward, charming style, it’s not a massive wine, yet should drink nicely on release and over the following 6-7 years. Rating 88-90 -The Wine Advocate,
Wine-making process: The grapes are handpicked, with a meagre yield of approximately 20 hl/ha and advanced ripening. The fruits are then de-stalked and treaded, and each vintage is matured separately. The wine-making process is punctuated with the manual immersion of the skins in the must. It undergoes a long fermentation at a controlled temperature to enhance extraction and increase the suppleness of the tannins for this well-structured wine.
Wine sensory analysis: Visual aspect: purple colour with violet hues.
Olfactory description: highly colourful nose with fragrances of Garrigue and pit fruits.
