    Gigondas Hautes Garrigues 2017, Santa Duc

    60 % Grenache fra meget gamle stokke og 40 % Mourvedre. Alle druerne kommer fra det område i Gigondas, der hedder Hautes Garrigues. Gæret med delvis afstilkning - macereringstid på i alt 2 måneder. Lagret 18 måneder på store fade og amforaer af terrakotta

    Intens duft af mørke bær; solbær, brombær, blåbær og kirsebær. Krydrede noter af nellike, vanilie, læder og lakrids. Meget kraftig vin med stor frugtintensitet, godt tanninbid og en meget, meget lang eftersmag.

    Velegnet til kraftig mad; krydrede retter med oksekød eller lammekød og helt perfekt til dansk julemad; and, gås eller flæskesteg med klassisk tilbehør. Vinen kan gemmes en del år og efter 6-7 år begynder den at udvikle elegante noter af skovbund, der går rigtig godt sammen med retter med trøffel, morkler og andre svampe.

    95-97 p. Wine Advocate (årgang 2017)

    A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre, the 2017 Gigondas Les Hautes Garrigues is less aromatic than it was last year, folding in darker notes of black cherries and chocolate. Yet it's still wonderfully full and textured, with a plush, velvety feel and a long finish. It seems to grow in aroma and flavor the longer it's in the glass, always a good sign. - Joe Czerwinski

    94-95 p. Vinous (årgang 2017)

    Brilliant magenta. Highly perfumed aromas of ripe red/blue fruits, exotic spices and incense, along with a smoky mineral nuance that builds as the wine opens up. Smooth and seamless in texture, offering palate-staining raspberry and cherry pie, spicecake and lavender pastille flavors that convey a suave blend of power and finesse. Finishes sweet, gently tannic and extremely long, leaving behind exotic star anise and floral notes. - Josh Raynolds

    95-97 p. Wine Advocate (årgang 2016)

    Flowering garrigue, black cherries and licorice all pop on the nose of the 2016 Gigondas Les Hautes Garrigues. Full-bodied, rich, velvety and intense without being overbearing, it's a tremendous effort, with the poise, grace and charm of Disney's Fantasia ballet-dancing hippo. And the finish is long—really long. - Joe Czerwinski

    92-94 p. Vinous (årgang 2016)

    Bright violet. Spice- and floral-accented aromas of black raspberry, boysenberry and candied licorice, along with a smoky mineral element that builds in the glass. Alluringly sweet and pliant in the mouth, offering intense red and blue fruit and lavender pastille flavors that are given spine by a core of juicy acidity. Closes extremely long, with emphatic, spicy cut, harmonious tannins and lingering florality. - Josh Raynolds

    17+ p. JancisRobinson.com (årgang 2016)

    Firmly tannic on the palate, compact fruit without much expressiveness on the nose or the palate. Fine-grained and superbly balanced between tannin and acid, but there's not much flavour complexity at this stage. - Richard Hemming MW

    93-95 p. Vinous (2015)

    Full ruby. Smoke-accented aromas of red and dark berry liqueur, incense, spicecake and candied flowers show outstanding energy and clarity. Sweet, seamless and broad in the mouth, offering concentrated black raspberry, boysenberry and lavender pastille flavors that fan out steadily with air. Rich but nervy and precise as well, carrying no excess fat. Velvety tannins frame an extremely long, incisive finish that leaves behind notes of sweet dark berries and candied flowers. - Josh Raynolds

    92-95 p. The Wine Advocate (2015)

    I loved the 2015 Gigondas Hautes Garrigues and this flagship cuvee is made from 65% Grenache and 35% Mourvèdre that’s brought up in foudre. It’s a full-bodied, concentrated, yet brilliantly proportioned Gigondas that has classy notes of blackberries, plums, garrigue and leather. It’s going to need 3-5 years of cellaring. - Jeb Dunnuck

    16,5 p. Jancis Robinson (2015)

    65% Grenache, 35% Mourvèdre. 100% destemmed and vinified in stainless steel. Matured for 10 months in foudre. Cask sample. Tasted blind. Deep crimson. So dense it is not yielding much on the nose. Very sweet and opulent in texture with some gaminess on the finish. Dramatic red wine! There is arguably more winemaking than vineyard in here but it’s an attractive package. Tannins quite insistent for the moment. - Jancis Robinson
