Domaine Saint Damien Gigondas La Louisiane 2016
|Region||France, Rhone, Gigondas|
|Brand||Domaine Saint Damien|
Wine EnthusiastLocated on the terraced hillsides of Gigondas, the vineyard site La Louisiane boasts Grenache vines that are nearly 80 years old. This is a powerful, intoxicating wine meshing rich black cherry and berry flavors against a sheen of crushed-stone minerality. It's voluminous but not dense, finishing on chalky, gripping tannins. Beautiful already but should improve through 2028, hold a few years further.
