Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas
Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas is a purple, inky colour, a complex nose of black and red berries, liquorice and violets.
Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas has generous, ripe fruit is offset by a fresh, mineral length and fine, supporting tannins.
As at Vaudieu in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Laurent Brechet has extended his commitment to quality to Domaine des Bosquets, his 25 hectares of vineyards in the Gigondas appellation, at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail mountains.
Notarial records indicate the existence of “vinea culta” at the spot known as “Les Bosquets” in 1376.
It is at this exact location that the nobleman Jean de Rivière, Lord of Laval, built the Domaine des Bosquets’ first edifice in 1644. http://www.famillebrechet.com/chateau-de-vaudieu
The tower with battlements, lined with a “chemin de ronde” (raised protected walkway), rubbing shoulders with the huge provençal farm, is like a crows nest overlooking the Rhône Valley.
Several distinguished personalities have laid their seal here. Eugène Raspail first, who was responsible for the estate’s development form 1861.
A century later, another visionary, Gabriel Meffre, took up the reins of the estate, restoring its nobility. Les Bosquets remains in the family today, having been in its possession centuries ago.
In 1987, after the death of gabriel Meffre, his daughter Sylvette Bréchet took the destiny of this property in hand.
With her impetus, her son, Laurent Bréchet, joined her: the Bosquets estate was given a new lease of life with the creation of a circular cellar in the shape of a provençal Chapel, then an underground cellar for aging the wine.
In 2006, it was the turn of her other son, Julien, to return to the estate, bringing fresh ideas with him.
The estate won three consecutive times in the competition of wines of Gigondas, 2 times to the general agricultural competition in Paris, and the international press highlights its rise.
