Domaine Saint-Damien Gigondas Vieilles Vignes 2011

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Starting out, the 2011 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes is a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Mourvedre that spent 6 months in old foudre followed by a year in concrete tank. Its ruby/purple color is followed by a rich plum and kirsch driven-bouquet, with plenty of smoked meats, wild herbs, violets and spice-cake all emerging from the glass. A supple, heady and character filled Gigondas that has a knockout texture, notable freshness and a solid length, it should have a solid decade of longevity. Drink now–2021.

Deep ruby. Aromas of black raspberry, potpourri and smoky minerals, with a touch of Asian spices gaining strength with air. Densely packed but light on its feet, offering sweet, oak-spiced dark berry flavors and a touch of cola. Fine-grained tannins add shape to the clinging finish. This has gained in energy since I tasted it a year ago.
