Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, March 2017
Deeper and richer, with just slightly more purity than the La Louisiane, the blockbuster 2007 Gigondas les Souteyrades (80/20 Grenache and Mourvèdre) is full-bodied and decadent, with huge notes of meaty black currants... Deeper and richer, with just slightly more purity than the La Louisiane, the blockbuster 2007 Gigondas les Souteyrades (80/20 Grenache and Mourvèdre) is full-bodied and decadent, with huge notes of meaty black currants, smoked meats, licorice and roasted Provencal herbs. It, too, has ripe, sweet tannin still adding some focus on the finish, and it's a sensational, unctuous, heavenly tour de force in Gigondas that does everything right. Given the prices these went for on release, these might be considered some of the greatest values in the wine world. - Jeb Dunnuck

The Rhone Report, March 2011
A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre that's aged for 12 months in concrete tank followed by 12 months in oak barrels the 2007 Domaine Saint-Damien Gigondas Les Souteyrades comes from a single plot (Les Souteyrades)... A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre that's aged for 12 months in concrete tank followed by 12 months in oak barrels the 2007 Domaine Saint-Damien Gigondas Les Souteyrades comes from a single plot (Les Souteyrades) located in the lower terraced portion of the AOC. The wine is a beauty and displays a vibrant purple semi-opaque color to go with first rate seemingly traditional aromatics of garrigue wild flowers and licorice that are saturated with dark fruit aromas of black cherry and blackberry liqueur wet stone and graphite. Possibly a touch more edgy and delineated than the La Louisiane but slightly less exotic this possesses fantastic concentration and extract on the palate showing medium to full body a rich full texture good acidity and loads of underlying tannic structure. Ideally this would be cellared for 5-7 years at which point it should have 15+ years of prime drinking.

Vibrant black raspberry and cassis aromas are complemented by sassafras and cola with a bright note of white pepper adding vivacity. Juicy finely etched red and dark berry flavors pick up a refreshing bitter edge with air along with a spicy quality. Finishes bright focused and very long.
