Domaine Guisset 2016

Roussillon, Sud de France, FranceThe 2016 blends 66 percent syrah with 20 percent carignan and 14 percent grenache, turning out a scant 5800 cases. The vinification is traditional from destemmed stalks to the daily dump and reloads of the fermenting fruit at the halfway point. Post-fermentation maceration is 7-10 days, followed by eight months in stainless steel for the carignan and grenache and one and two-year-old barrels for the syrah. The colour is dark, the nose complex and inviting with an electric red fruit demeanour followed by a stony, mineral finished wrapped into garrigue. A charcuterie plate, grilled beef or lamb chops would be an excellent match for this real wine, as would a decade in your cellar.Tasted: 01 August 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.99 BCLS Exclusive Producer: Domaine GuissetDistributors: Enoteca Bacco Importers
