Domaine St Damien Gigondas Vieilles Vignes 2018 Tasting Notes
''The Domaine St Damien Gigondas Vieilles Vignes 2018 shows impressive levels of black cherry fruit, joined by hints of garrigue and licorice. It's full-bodied, silky, finishing long and savory.'' 94 Points, Wine Advocate Magazine.
''It has a wonderful flowery incense and blue fruit quality as well as medium to full body, a ripe, rounded mid-palate, and a great texture. It’s a more forward, charming, sexy wine that’s going to drink nicely in its youth yet also evolve gracefully.'' 94 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
''The Domaine St Damien Gigondas Vieilles Vignes 2018 has expansive aromas of ripe red/blue fruits and licorice are complemented by bright mineral and exotic spice nuances that emerge with air. Juicy, penetrating raspberry, bitter cherry and candied violet flavors become sweeter with aeration and show a surprisingly delicate touch. Velvety tannins lend subtle grip to an impressively long, spice-laced finish that emphatically echoes the red fruit and floral notes.'' 93 Points, Jay Raynolds, Vinous Media.
Worldwide demand for the gloriously rich and generous wines of the Southern Rhône’s largest and most famous appellation, Châteauneuf-du-Pape (CNDP), has pushed prices beyond the reach of most. It’s also focused attention on the more affordable wines of nearby Gigondas, an appellation traditionally in the shadow of CNDP, more recently appreciated by astute drinkers for the value they offer. As a respected colleague said to me the other day “We need to bang the drum for Gigondas a lot louder – crazy good wines at half the price (or less) of CNDP.”
