Ripe Gigondas

Domaine Brusset Gigondas Les Hauts de Montmirail 1998
Rhone, France
60% Granache..25% Mouvedre..15% Syrah...
Funky nose....needed some wrist shaking...then funkyless....still with a deep colour..no ageing...herbal nose..lots of minerals...no rough edges...this was a massive vintage..but all that has dissolved with age...a ripe Rhöne..but I missed that bite of youth that attracts me to this area.
Points 15.5
