Domaine du Pesquier Gigondas 2000

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/57556 for £20.Gigondas is an AOC created in 1971 [although wine production goes back to before the Romans] for red and rose wines around the village of that name in the southern Rhone valley. Domaine du Pesquier has been owned by the Boutiere family for four generations and consists of 24 hectares spread across the four appellations of Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Cotes du Rhone and Vin de Pays de Vaucluse. There are 17 hectares in Gigondas spread over several holdings. The wine consists of 75% Grenache, 20% syrah and 5% mourverde and spends time in oak barrels.I started a bottle this evening with my supper of chicken breast and I did enjoy it. There is some nice blackcurrant ,blackberry or cherry style fruit there and the tannins are just spot on giving it a reserved and structured taste. This is one of the better southern Rhones I have had so I have given it high marks.
