Domaine Saint-Damien Gigondas Vieilles Vignes 2021

Critical Acclaim: 91 pts Jeb Dunnuck 91 pts,; James Suckling.

Tasting notes: "The only cuvée released in 2021, the 2021 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes is a beautiful, elegant red displaying the charming, supple, layered style of the vintage. Offering notes of Provençal herbs, pepper, and spicy red and black fruits, it's medium-bodied, has ripe, integrated tannins, and a great finish. It's going to drink brilliantly over the coming 7-8 years or so. Anticipated maturity 2023-2031."- Jeb Dunnuck. 

"Smoky and fruity nose with cherries, mixed berries, dried thyme and crushed peppercorns. Full body with chewy tannins. Spicy and punchy on the palate with lots of blueberries and plums, with fresh acidity running throughout. 80% grenache and 20% mourvedre. Vivid finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold."- James Suckling
