Domaine Montirius Gigondas Terres des Aines Red Rhone Wine 750mL
Wine Enthusiast 93 points – Bold veins of crushed stone and mineral lend vitality to blackberry and black-cherry flavors in this wine. An 80-20 blend of old-vine Grenache (averaging 75 years) and Mourvedre, it’s penetrating and pure in concentration, finishing on firm, peppery tannins. Ready now.
Vinous 93 points – Dark vivid ruby. Bright and energetic on the incisive nose, which displays intense red and dark berry, floral and spice qualities and a deeper hint of licorice. Juicy and finely detailed on the palate, offering lively raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that turn sweeter and pick up a touch of succulent herbs on the back half. Shows impressive energy and vibrant mineral thrust on a long, penetrating finish framed by supple, steadily mounting tannins..February/2020
We called this wine ‘Terre des Aines’ because the big parcel of 10 hectares was always handed down to the first of each new generation for the last 5 generations
