DOMAINE SAINT DAMIEN GIGONDAS VV
DOMAINE SAINT DAMIEN
80% Grenache (1964), 20% Mourvèdre (1977) fermented on skins for 5 weeks. Matured in large old 50 hl foudres for 12 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
"Moving to the 2019s, this is a great vintage for this estate, and all of the wines showed brilliantly. The 2019 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes is its usual 80/20 split of Grenache and Mourvèdre and has awesome dark fruits, ground pepper, licorice, truffle, and earthy mineral-like aromas and flavors. I love its mid-palate, it has elegance as well as power, ripe tannins, and a great finish. I finished my note with “Wow." - Jeb Dunnuck
