Coming from a small corner parcel of the La Colline vineyard, the utterly sensational 2015 Gigondas La Colline is primarily Grenache that includes a touch of whole clusters and is still aging in one- to three-year-old demi-muids. It possesses a huge nose of black raspberries, blackcurrants, toasted spice and garrigue in a stacked, full-bodied, concentrated, yet weightless style. It’s certainly up with the top handful of wines in the vintage and should not be missed! Readers wanting to get a hold of the best of the 2015 vintage need to latch onto these wines from Domaine des Bosquets. This estate has been brought up to the pinnacle of Gigondas, and the Southern Rhône, by the talent and drive of the Brechet family, namely the young Julien Brechet, and consultant Philippe Cambie... The two special cuvees include the La Colline and the Le Lieu Dit, and these are individual, singular wines... A deeper, richer, more blockbuster-styled wine, the La Colline comes from a tiny portion of the La Colline vineyard (which is a larger parcel of rocky limestone soils) and is 100% Grenache that’s aged in new and once used 600-liter barrels.

Up there with the finest wines made from the entire Southern Rhône in 2015, the 2015 Gigondas La Colline is a jaw-dropping effort offering serious amounts of black raspberries, camphor, dried flowers, and spice. Made from 100% Grenache that was mostly destemmed and aged all in 1-3-year-old demi-muids, this heavenly Gigondas has full-bodied richness, a stacked mid-palate, loads of sweet tannin and a great, great finish. Buy it if you can. (JebDunnuck.com)
This is brimming with dark plum, blueberry, raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors, all moving seamlessly together while the finish picks up a fine inlay of anise, black tea and chalky minerality. Pure and very long. Best from 2019 through 2032.
