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.
80% Syrah, 20% Grenache. A blend of fruit from the Gigondas appellation and lower-lying vineyards near the river Ouvèze. A higher proportion of syrah in 2018 gives wonderful freshness and vitality to the wine. Drink 2020-2023.
