Santa Duc Gigondas Les Garancieres 2010

Santa Duc Gigondas Les Garancieres 750ml 2010

A collection of old Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre vines planted in different plots all over the Gigondas area to ensure a perfect balance on each vintage (Alluvial calcareous clay terraces, red clay and old broken stone terraces).

Rating
 Wine Spectator 91 points (Oct 31 2013)
Very solid, featuring a slightly gutsy edge to the full-bodied core of blackberry paste, roasted fig and steeped plum fruit. Ganache and alder notes line the finish, revealing ample grip. Best from 2014 through 2020. 100 cases imported.-JM
 Vinous 91 points (Jan 2014)
Deep ruby. Heady cherry-vanilla, cassis and pipe tobacco scents are complemented by a smoky nuance and a hint of cola. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering palate-coating black and blue fruit flavors and a building spicy quality. Finishes smooth and long, with mounting tannins and a whiplash of dark berries and smoky herbs. This hefty Gigondas drinks very well now, with some air time.
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Dec 2013)
A blend of roughly 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah that’s aged in older foudre and tank, the 2010 Gigondas Les Garancieres offers a peppery, spice-driven profile, with plenty of black cherry, seaweed, leather and licorice aromas developing in the glass. Medium-bodied, rich and savory, with building tannin and good length, it should be given another year or so in the cellar, and drink nicely through 2020.

Technical notes
Grenache 80%, Syrah 10%, Mourvèdre 10%.
