User Reviews for Gigondas Grande Grenache 66 Santa Duc

Winemaker's Notes:

"The newest wine is an amazing effort and could easily rival, if not eclipse the Hautes Garrigues with 5-6 years of bottle age. The 2007 Gigondas Grand Grenache 66 comes from some of the oldest Grenache vines Yves Gras has. The color is inky purple, and the wine more backward than the Les Hautes Garrigues, which is somewhat surprising. Notes of crushed rocks (chalk), kirsch, and blacker fruits intermixed with hints of truffle and forest floor are followed by a full-bodied, sensationally concentrated wine with massive extract and high tannins. This wine has great purity and is bursting with potential. Certainly, if you can find this relatively limited-production item, 3-4 years of bottle age is warranted, but it should keep for 25+ years. It is a great effort and well-worth searching out...97+" WA 10/09
