Glistening magenta. Highly perfumed cherry liqueur and blackberry scents are complemented by hints of incense, potpourri and exotic spices.

Wine Advocate 93-95
Tasted from foudre, the 2018 Gigondas is dominated by black cherries and licorice. Its full-bodied, rich and velvety, with a long finish. Darker-fruited and extremely promising, it should drink well for well over a decade. Yields were only half of normal, about 15-16 hectoliters per hectare.
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.
