DOMAINE GUEISSARD 'LE PETIT G' IGP MEDITERRANÉE ROSÉ 2017

0.00

35% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 30% Cinsault. Screwcap

The Little G that all the homies want to be.  Made with a lot of care considering its level - grapes are hand harvested and manually sorted for starters.  Provence style through and through, it's of beautiful salmon shade, with a nose of zesty citrus, mandarin and satsuma, the palate fruit driven and crunchy, with some of Gueissard's house style showing through - a teeny bit of guava skin, red currants, tangarine/mandarin juice, and a herbal undertow.  2017's wine is a particularly juicy and fruit forward release, will win many fans.  Summer in a bottle.

Domaine Gueissard

Young gun, new wave Bandol

Established five years, a visit to this domaine in Sanary-sur-Mer, just outside of the town of Bandol, reveals the energy and buzz familiar at the best ‘young gun’ operations. There’s hunger, ambition, a streak of mischief and humour, experience working overseas as well as with the big local names (Domaine Tempier no less), and above all, major talent and skill. 

Headed up by winemaking duo Clément Minne and Pauline Giraud, this small domaine will be a force to follow and makes an interesting counterpoint to the ‘old guard’ Bandol producers currently represented in Australia. All fruit is hand harvested, vineyards not owned outright are leased and fully domaine managed, and the wines are not only spectacular, but exceptional value considering the provenance.
