ABOUT THIS WINE
From the lieu-dit "La Moutte," this tiny production rosé is from mostly 45 year old Cinsault Vines planted in 1970, and 20 year old Syrah vines. Medium-bodied, supple and quaffable, this wine is great with food or on its own!
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Domaine Saint-Damien is run by Joel and Amie Saurel and their son Romain who has now taken charge of the winemaking. The Saurel family had been tending vineyards for four generations, dating back to 1821, and until recently had been selling all of the grapes to negociants. In 1996 Joel resumed producing wine at the estate and in 2012 he gained Agriculture Biologique certification for the the vineyards of the estate. Vinification is classic with wines being fermented in large old cement tanks and aged in either cement tanks or large old foudres for the Gigondas.
Today the estate is comprised of 45 hectares of vineyards of which 15 are in Gigondas. All their vineyards are certified organic since 2012. The vines are an average age of 50 years and are very low yielding. The wines of Gigondas are bottled according to individual terroir (particularly soil type) known as the Saint Damien Trilogy.
