Brothers Thierry and Gilles Faravel have co-managed Domaine La Bouïssière since 1990. Their vines cover nine hectares at the feet of the famous Dentelles de Montmirail arête, making them some of the highest in Gigondas. The elegance and freshness of their wines is a direct result of this high elevation, which marks them out in an appellation known for producing wines with excellent richness and body.
After hand-harvesting, the bunches are then partially destemmed and gently crushed, before fermentation in concrete or stainless steel vats using indigenous yeasts. Ageing takes places in a range of small oak barrels, 600 litre demi-muids, larger oak foudres and two, recently introduced 17 hl egg-shaped, cement vats.
70% Grenache, 30% Syrah. The Faravels own 9 hectares of Gigondas vines, the vast majority of which lie high up in the Dentelles de Montmirail. 90% of the bunches are destemmed and the wine is aged 60% in oak foudres and barriques, and 40% in small, egg-shaped, cement vats. Masses of red cherry and red plum aromas; a rich, generous texture and a sweet, succulent finish. Drink 2023-2027.
