The 1999 Bouissiere, Gigondas is drinking spot on


Nine years ago I found that the 1999 Domaine La Bouissiere, Gigondas had a “chunky, rusticity that matches the fall weather.”  I enjoyed it, bought more, and recently tried another bottle.  It is now robust and rugged with ample fruit so it has held up all of these years.  It will never approach the complexity of a Chateauneuf du Pape but it certainly has plenty of attractive personality.  And yes, it is a great selection for the fall.

1999 Domaine La Bouissiere, Gigondas
Imported by MacArthur Liquors.  Alcohol 14%.  This wine boasts the good robustness and rugged weight of a traditional wine from Gigondas.  There are dense, strong fruit flavors, nutmeg spices, and some roast earth too.  Its an attractive wine with fine perfumed wood.  If I criticise then the weight of the wine could use a touch more acidity.  *** Now though will last but not improve.
