Domaine Raspail-Ay Gigondas 2007
Wine Advocate 92
"Perhaps the finest effort since the period between 1978 and 1985, the dense ruby/purple-hued 2007 Gigondas boasts a stunningly beautiful perfume of spring flowers, raspberries, cherries, crushed rocks, and subtle spice. Deep, seductive, and full-bodied, it builds incrementally on the palate, resulting in a delicious, pure wine that can be drunk young or cellared for 15 or more years.

"Perhaps the finest effort since the period between 1978 and 1985, the dense ruby/purple-hued 2007 Gigondas boasts a stunningly beautiful perfume of spring flowers, raspberries, cherries, crushed rocks, and subtle spice. Deep, seductive, and full-bodied, it builds incrementally on the palate, resulting in a delicious, pure wine that can be drunk young or cellared for 15 or more years. One of the benchmark producers of Gigondas, especially for elegant, complex wines that represent a synthesis in style between a grand cru red Burgundy and a southern Rhone, the Ay family?s beloved Domaine Raspail-Ay has turned out a gorgeously complete and sensual Gigondas in 2007. Review by Robert Parker Wine Advocate # 185 (Oct 2009)"

80 % Grenache, 15 % Syrah and 5 % Mourvedre.
About Domaine Raspail
Dominique Ay, the serious-minded proprietor of Domaine Raspail-Ay makes one of the most iconic wines in all of Gigondas. Its 19 hectares make up one contiguous block of vines, mid-slope on the rugged clay/ limestone terraces, the best terroir of the Gigondas appelation. The imposing rock formation of the Dentelles de Montmirail looms above as a backdrop. Besides a small amount of Gigondas Rosè, only one wine is made-Gigondas. There is no Côtes du Rhone, no "Réserve", "Vielles Vignes" or special new oak cuvée bottling. Only one wine, consistently ranked among the top wines produced in the appelation year in and year out.
