92 Pt. Gigondas 2018 Bonpas 'Grand Prieur'

92 Pt. Gigondas 2018 Bonpas 'Grand Prieur'

In 1318, Pope John XXII gifted the Notre Dame de Bonpas chapel to the Carthusian monks, who adopted the motto of "the wine is steady while the world is turning" and set the stage for what is known today simply as 'Bonpas.' You can taste this incredible history in their 2018 'Grand Prieur' Gigondas - a classic blend of Southern Rhone varieties that together showcase an enticing, youthful fruitiness and earthy, mineral-driven appeal. Savor a glass tonight alongside rustic and hearty dishes like pasta puttanesca, herbes de Provence-rubbed lamb, or smoky baba ganoush spread over crusty French bread.

By Bonpas
Gigondas Grand Prieur

Origins of the Cuvee
Located near Avignon, in the heart of the Rhone Valley, the fortified stronghold of Bonpas, from the French "Bon passage," has watched over the safe crossing of the Durance River along the historic route that once linked Rome with Avignon. The estate marks the gateway to the southern Cotes-du-Rhone appellations and opens its gates to discovering the region's terroirs. Its sophisticated, elegant wines embody the terroirs and varietals of this famous region through their power and fruitiness.

Location
Terraced vineyard set at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail mountains, on the outskirts of the village of Gigondas.

Grape Varietals
Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre

Vinification and Maturing
A traditional process with long, thermo-regulated maceration at 22-25 degrees C. Minimal interference allows full expression to the natural character of the grapes and the terroir. 15% of the blend aged in 228L French oak barrels (from one to three wines) for eight months.

Tasting Notes
Visual: Intense, scarlet red
Nose: Powerful bouquet of dark fruit
Palate: A complex wine of great composure, with notes of olives, blackcurrant, and spice. The structure is at once elegant and velvety, powerful and refined.

Food and Wine Pairing
Served at 17 degrees C, this Gigondas will pair perfectly with grilled meats or meats in sauce, as well as rustic game dishes.

This plush blend [...] offers rich blueberry and mulberry flavors lifted by hints of wild mint, crushed stone, and smoke. Enveloped by fine, feathery tannins, it's welcoming in its youth but concentrated enough to drink well through 2030.

The 2018 Gigondas Grand Prieur starts off with strawberry and watermelon notes on the nose. It's medium to full-bodied and silky at first, with an earthy undercurrent and building tannins that eventually outweigh the fruit on the finish.

Premier Online Wine Shop

Top Quality Wines at Flash Sale Prices

Welcome to Wines 'Til Sold Out! Whether you are a returning member or coming across WTSO for the first time, you've come to the right online wine shop for flash wine sales that will change the way you shop for your wine. Browse our shop today to find a wide selection of high-end wines for sale.

Who We Are

Since our beginnings a decade ago, our online wine store's membership base and service area have grown, but our goal has always been the same: to let our members experience the world's best wine at inexpensive prices. To achieve this, our flash wine sales feature only high-end wines selected by our team, all at inexpensive, discounted prices—making us the leading provider of high-quality discount wines online.

Over the years, WTSO has made connections with many of the greatest wine sellers, winemakers, and distributors in the world, allowing us to cultivate an unmatched online product selection and pass on significant savings to our members. We are delighted to be able to provide our members with our favorite wines, from the best French White Bordeaux to sweet American Cabernet Sauvignon to that dry yet easy-drinking Italian Chianti wine.

How It Works

WTSO is proud to do business with hundreds of wineries and distributors online, and we are always looking for new brands to feature on our website. Each bottle that we offer is hand-picked with careful consideration of every aspect of the wine. Once we have chosen a wine that meets the standards that our members have come to expect, we queue it to be featured for sale in our online wine store.

The bottle will then become part of a flash wine sale, wherein we offer that specific bottle for a limited period of time or until it is gone. Due to the high quality and sometimes rare nature of the wines we offer, wine deals online can last as little as one or two hours before selling out.

Regardless of what kind of wine you buy, you can count on free shipping from WTSO with a minimum purchase of any of our wine deals. When you shop from us for discount wines online, we guarantee safe and secure wine distribution and mailing methods. So, that no matter the size of your order, you can rest assured your purchase will arrive fully intact and ready to enjoy.

Commitment to Quality

A large part of what has made WTSO one of the world's most popular online wine stores retailers of wine is our unwavering commitment to the quality of the products that we sell.

Deciding which wines to feature in our shop is no simple task. As part of our company policy, we would never offer any brand or product that we would not happily drink ourselves. That's why we carefully deliberate over each bottle and select only products we truly feel are good enough to be featured for sale on our site.

It is this dedication to quality that keeps our members coming back to our online wine shop — week after week and bottle after bottle. With a strong emphasis on finding some of the most unique and sought-after wines available, WTSO's wine retailers guarantee that you will never be disappointed with the product you receive.

Bonus Offers & Marathons

Bonus Offers

In addition to our current featured offer, WTSO gives members an opportunity to receive extra wine delivery gifts from a hand-selected collection of wines. These inexpensive offers involve a themed group of wines that are grouped together by our team of experts specifically for your enjoyment. They're great for expanding your palate or for when you're gift-shopping.

Since the offer changes approximately once a month, you might find a bonus offer for sparkling wines one month, a group of sweet Italian white wines the next, and wines from a single vintage the month after that. Just like our ongoing current offer, these bonus wines are available to buy at discounted prices.

Marathons

We are always excited to offer WTSO Marathon Days, a fan favorite among members. While we provide our members with the top deals on quality wine every day of the year, we also hold occasional flash sale Marathons, where we typically sell out of over 70 wines in one day.

Each Marathon features various types of high-end wine, from French and Italian favorites to new American varietals of white wine, and includes our company-wide offer of free shipping with minimum purchase.

When it comes to WTSO Marathons, however, it is important to act fast. Each wine variety tends to sell out within 15 minutes or less! To keep an eye out for our next Marathon Day, subscribe to our newsletter.
