Quite possibly the wine of the vintage the brilliant 2009 Domaine Santa Duc Gigondas Prestige des Hautes Garrigues is a blend of 80% Grenache 15% Mourvèdre 3% Syrah and 2% Cinsault that's aged for 2 years in a combination of French oak barrels and foudre. Sporting an inky red/blood color to go with thrilling aromas charred earth garrigue licorice and smoked meat as well as beautifully ripe dark fruit this full-bodied seriously concentrated Gigondas has a layered textured mid-palate fantastic freshness and a structured age-worthy core. Give bottles 3-5 years in the cellar and then drink over the following 15 years.

A big, rich and massively endowed wine is the 2009 Gigondas Prestigue des Hautes Garrigues. About as hedonistic as Gigondas gets, with overflowing notes of cassis, black raspberries, garrigue and spice, it hits the palate... A big, rich and massively endowed wine is the 2009 Gigondas Prestigue des Hautes Garrigues. About as hedonistic as Gigondas gets, with overflowing notes of cassis, black raspberries, garrigue and spice, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, sweet, sweet tannin and a stacked mid-palate. I doubt it will be as long lived as the 2010, but it will offer incredible amounts of pleasure over the coming 10-15 years. - Jeb Dunnuck
