2017 Saint Damien Vieilles Vignes (750ml)

Grenache from Gigondas, Rhône, France

94WA

The 2017 Gigondas Classique Vieilles Vignes was scheduled to be bottled the week after my visit, so I tasted the final assemblage, which is 75% to 80% Grenache and the rest Mourvèdre. Scents of crushed stone, pepper and licorice lead the way, followed by intense notes of black cherries and tree bark. It's full-bodied, silky and long, with hints of chocolate that creep in on the finish. It looks suppler than I remember it being last year, and it's for the better.

92-94 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate (Issue # 244 - Aug 2019)
