2017: Loaded with cassis and blueberry fruit. The 2017 Gigondas Tradition les Grands Montmirail is full-bodied and supple, yet it seems neady weightless on the palate: that's how easy it is to drink al ready. Silky and long, this is lovely stuff for drinking over the next 7-9 years. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
This has beautiful raspberry, cassis and plum sauce flavors forming the core and stretching out nicely while anise, black tea and violet notes fill in throughout. Has grip, but with a bright feel due to fresh acidity. Approachable already, but there's no rush. Laurent Brusset's vines are as dramatic as those of any vigneron in Gigondas, but with one distinction. Almost all are lcated on the backside of the Dentelles, with a full southern exposure, resulting in some of the most vividly ripe wines the appellation has to offer. Brusset has chosed the more modern approach of destemming, yet he uses only a modicum of new oak for the ageing, preferring a more finesse-driven profile for the wines. Brusset is a third-generation vigneron. The estate has been based in Cairanne since his grandfather, André, established it in 1947, selling fruit to the local co-op. His father, Daniel, bought the family's first vines in Gigondas in 1966, and today their Gigondas holdings have grown to 45 acres. The bulk of Brusset's 20.000-plus case production is Côtes du Rh&one-Villages Cairanne, yet the Gigondas bottlings are among the best in the appellation.
