Denne Gigondas er sammensat af 70% Grenache, 23% Syrah og 7% Mourvedre som efter sortering får lov til at gære ca. 30 dage, hvorefter vinen flyttes til store gamle egefade hvor vinen lagres i op til 24 måneder. Duften er kraftfuld og meget rig med masser af sort frugt som kirsebær, solbær og brombær, men du finder også lakrids og sort peber i både næse og smag. Tanninerne er kraftfulde i vinens ungdom men samtidig besidder den både blødhed og elegance.

En meget stor vin som repræsenterer noget af det bedste fra Gigondas...som både kan drikkes nu men samtidig besidder potentiale til at lille i 20 år.

A blend of 70% Grenache, 23% Syrah and 7% Mourvèdre, all aged in old foudres, the 2017 Gigondas performed brilliantly, both in my blind tasting and at the domaine. Floral notes accent red berries on the nose, while on the full-bodied palate, darker notes of espresso, black olive and chocolate take charge. It's richly tannic but ripe, with a creamy-velvety feel in the mouth and a long, savory finish.

Vinous 93-94P
Brilliant ruby. High-toned aromas of red/blue fruit preserves and candied flowers, along with a bright, spicy topnote. Shows sharp focus and lift to juicy black raspberry, boysenberry and lavender pastille flavors, which slowly spread out on the back half. Finishes smoky, subtly sweet and impressively long, with mounting tannins and a whiplash of sweet blue fruit.

The 2017 Gigondas is a beauty, and Southern Rhône lovers owe it to themselves to have bottles of Raspail-Ay in their cellar. A blend of 70% Grenache, 23% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre, brought up all in very old foudres, it offers a vivid ruby color as well as a smorgasbord of Provençal goodness in its kirsch, sappy flowers, incense, ground pepper, and obvious minerality. Reminding me of the 1990 with its sexy, charming character, this concentrated, perfectly balanced effort will drink nicely with short-term cellaring and keep for two decades.

Decanter 95P
From a single unbroken plot near the village of Gigondas, matured in old foudres for 18-24 months, producing a single wine - no special cuvées. It has a lovely nose, really detailed with vibrant damson compote and blackberries. Black cherries can also be coaxed out, alongside some lavender and dark chocolate. The palate is medium-bodied, really fresh and crisp, with a long, herbal finish. It's already dangerously drinkable and buzzes with life. Really top stuff, with a lightness of touch and elegance that some others lack this year. Drinking Window 2018 - 2030

Vindynastiet Ay startede tilbage i 1812, da Dominique Ays oldefar købte et område i Gigondas, efter han var blevet meget betaget af området og den vin der blev frembragt. Da oldefaderen døde skulle boet deles og det blev delt i et stort område, der nu hedder Chateau Raspail Ay og Dominique Ays lille vingård, der hedder Domaine Raspail Ay. Den oprindelige ejendom blev ligeligt fordelt mellem arvingerne, selv om kvantiteten var meget forskellig. Kvaliteten ligger i Domaine Raspail-Ay.Ay's vine er det største kup i Rhônedalen og overgår i kvalitet de fleste andre Cru vine som f.eks. Chateauneuf-du-Pape og så koster den ca. det halve. Ejendommen er på 18 ha tilplantet med 65% grenache og 15% Syrah suppleret med mourvedre og cinsault.
Vinen lagres 18-24 måneder på gamle egefade.
