Domaine Les Pallieres Les Racines Gigondas 2014
"Les Racines", a cuvée made with grapes from the estate's oldest vines, has the velvet, depth and harmony that defines old Grenache when cultivated in refined terroirs. It has very high ageing potential, as balance is the main factor.
The wine has aromas of violets and loganberry and a fulsome palate with fruit and tannin nicely balanced and notes of liquorice and bay leaf at the back.

Antonio Galloni/Vinous – Bright ruby. Spicy and energetic on the nose, displaying intense red and dark berry scents and suggestions of candied flowers and garrigue. Spicy, tightly focused raspberry and bitter cherry flavors deepen and spread out slowly, picking up a subtle licorice nuance. Shows very good energy and mineral-driven thrust on the clinging finish, which is framed by dusty, harmonious tannins.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2014 Gigondas les Racines is truly gorgeous, and a serious wine in a difficult vintage for the appellation. From yields of 25 hectoliters per hectare, it has beautiful notes of black cherries, blackberries, hints of pepper and bouquet garni in a medium-bodied, ultra-fine, ultra-pure style. It’s a hidden little gem that will keep for a decade.
