2011 Domaine Saint Damien "Les Souteyrades" Gigondas

SKU #1160303 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Similarly-styled, with a gorgeous perfume of spice-cake, potpourri, licorice, plum sauce, kirsch and pepper, the 2011 Gigondas Les Souteyrades has a broad, expansive mouthfeel, solid overall concentration and full-bodied richness that develops in the glass. It’s a quintessential, heady Gigondas to drink over the coming 7-8 years. Drink now-2021. (JD)  (12/2013)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Vivid red. Highly perfumed aromas of candied red fruits and lavender, with a deeper cherry pit quality gaining power with aeration. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and boysenberry flavors complicated by sassafras and allspice. In an exotic style, with plenty of upfront appeal. Finishes sappy and long, with gentle tannins adding grip.  (2/2014)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
