Domaine Raspail-Ay produces classic Gigondas wines. Full-bodied, fruity, fine and well-balanced. Aromas of red fruits - raspberries and black cherries - with notes of black pepper, lead to more complex scents of licorice and herbs de Provence. Tannins are ripe, the wine fills the mouth with warm, generous flavors yet with an underlying structure that bodes well for future potential. A fruit-forward and accessible wine.

Wine AdvocateStill in foudre, the 2015 Gigondas from Domaine Raspail-Ay is a fine-looking blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, vinified in concrete and then aged in foudre. It's full-bodied and creamy-textured, with spice flourishes of cinnamon, cracked pepper and herbs de Provence layered over red plums and finished off by masses of ripe tannins. Drink Date: 2019-2027.

Wine SpectatorVery solid, with a core of steeped dark plum, fig and black currant fruit that is still a bit coiled up, while singed cedar, lavender, savory and tobacco notes peek throughout. Shows a light sanguine echo on the finish. Just wait this out a bit longer in the cellar. Best from 2020 through 2025. 6,000 cases made.
