A very deep, dark crimson robe with rich, fruity, spicy and complex aromas. Very round and powerful on the palate with long-lasting flavours of blackberry, dark chocolate and spice. Smooth tannins lend structure to this robust wine. Serve with grilled meats, meat prepared in sauces, game and cheeses.
Domaine Brusset Gigondas 'Les Hauts de Montmirail'
Regional Trophy Winner, Decanter World Wine Awards 2014 - "Rich, dark wild berry aromas with red berry and liquorice hints. The palate is fresh with a lovely volume of layered fruit and smooth, firm tannins, leading to a spiced, peppery finish. Long and delicious – and definitely a winner.""Sleek sweep of dark cherry fruit across the nose, good and pure. Bright, black cherry fruit and winter spices intermingled with smoky oak. Intense with some tar and graphite; complex and multi-layered, with noticeable Syrah." 17/20 (90 points). -Decanter Magazine, February 2014 "One of the leading estates in Gigondas, Domaine Brusset covers roughly 18 hectares in Gigondas, all of which are located in the higher elevation, terraced parts of the appellation. He produces two cuvees, each from single plots." 94 points (2011) -Jeb Dunnuck, December 2013
