This 2007 marks the first year Pallières separated its fruit into two cuvées, isolating very distinct terroirs in this beautiful corner of the southern Rhône. Les Racines features the domaine's oldest vines in sloping clay soils, and always delivers rich cherry fruit, notes of violets and lavender, and more elegant tannins than the punchier “Terrasse” bottling. Deep and expansive on the palate, it demands flavorsome roasts, stews, or a pristine cut of dry-aged beef over coals.

**Extremely limited quantities, maximum four bottles per purchase**

Outer quote mark Even better is the 2007 Gigondas Les Racines Vieilles Vignes. Its dense ruby/purple hue is accompanied by an extraordinary bouquet of black raspberries, kirsch, licorice, crushed rocks, and flowers. Full-bodied with sensational texture, purity, and length as well as remarkable elegance and freshness, this stunning Gigondas can be enjoyed over the next 15-20 years. Bravo!
