Domaine St Damien Gigondas Cuvée les Souteyrades 2006
"A candidate for “wine of the vintage,” the 2006 Gigondas Les Souteyrades possesses superb notes of jammy strawberries, black cherries, raspberries, flowers, and a crushed rock-like minerality. This full-bodied, pure, layered 2006 does not display the compelling richness of the 2007, but it is a beautiful wine that is already drinking well...93" WA 2/09
Savory herbal notes on the nose with minerals and fruit cake, which really thrilled me to see such a balance of savory meets sweet. On the palate, I found spicy sugar dusted black fruit, which led to a long and fresh finish. This is a bottle I will buy for my cellar.
