Tasting notes

Aromas of plum, raspberry, black cherry, olive and truffle are also felt. You can feel not only the beautiful degree of maturity, but also the aroma of vegetables and pepper. Plenty of fruit and depth of flavor. Slowly unfolding, delicate, wrapped in beautiful acidity, very round. Fresh mint, lemongrass and lush green nuances. Good balance and excellent cost performance! It has a gentle taste, yet has a concentrated feel, high-quality tannins, and a silky finish.

Winery Description

Domaine St. Damien’s cuvées of Gigondas has become the reference for classic full-bodied yet fine Gigondas, with scores by all journalists being both consistent and high every vintage.  Almost as popular as their high-scoring Giogondas cuvees, are their Côtes-du-Rhône bottlings for their intense concentration and tremendous value. 

This 40 ha family estate was established in 1821. In 2013 Damien SAUREL joined his father, Joël SAUREL after his oenologie studies. Damien is now the 4th generation to produce Gigondas with 50 years old vines.

Deeply attached to his land, Joël SAUREL believes that the terroir is the only one who can decide how the wine is going to taste. In 1996 the estate start responsible farming program and got his organic certification in 2012.

Note
St. Damien was an early Christian saint (martyred in the year 287 A.D.), considered the patron saint of doctors. There was a chapel to his honor in the tiny hamlet of La Baumette, just outside the village of Gigondas, where Joel Saurel lives.  M. Saurel’s predecessor took the name Saint Damien for the domaine in 1979.
