Cellar your 2014 Domaine Raspail-Ay, Gigondas


I am a big fan of Domaine Raspail-Ay, Gigondas so I’ll admit that the 2014 vintage is missing some of the depth of earlier vintages such as 2010 and 2009.  The 2014 Domaine Raspail-Ay, Gigondas is deceptively approachable but the roundness belies the fact that this wine is best left in the cellar for several more years.  You can grab your bottles at MacArthur Beverages.

2014 Domaine Raspail-Ay, Gigondas – $30
Imported by Michael Corso Selections.  This wine is a blend of mostly Grenache with a good portion of Syrah and a touch of Mourvedre.  It is aged for nearly two years in casks and vats.  Alcohol 14.5%.  Tasted over two days it remains dense and smooth yet slightly textured.  There are still very focused kirsch flavors and a mineral finish.  It sports an attractive chewiness.  Despite the round, approachability this really needs more time.  *** 2019-2029.
