2006 Gigondas Préstige des Hautes Garrigues, Domaine Santa Duc

The flagship cuvée at Santa Duc and only produced in exceptional years, this is largely old-vine Grenache with some Syrah and a little Cinsault and Mourvèdre. The nose exudes freshly crushed, wonderful ripe dark fruits as well as notes of provençal herbs. On the palate, this is generous, rich and brooding, a well-extracted wine with sweet, enticing ripeness. Structured with grippy, yet round tannins, this deep-laden gigondas possesses a striking stony minerality. Admirably concentrated and built to last, this is regularly one of the over-achievers of the Southern Rhône and we are delighted to be featuring it for the first time.
