I loved the 2019 Gigondas Les Hautes Garrigues, one of the finest vintages of this cuvée under the helm of Benjamin Gras. Medium ruby-hued, with gorgeous meaty, peppery, Provençal aromatics, it needs plenty of air, and...

This 2019 Domaine Santa Duc Les Hautes Garrigues is a remarkable wine that showcases the expertise and craftsmanship of Benjamin Gras, the winemaker behind this outstanding cuvée. With its medium ruby hue, this wine immediately captivates the eye and promises a sensory experience like no other.

Upon nosing this wine, one is greeted with a symphony of aromas that evoke the essence of Provence. The bouquet is deeply meaty and peppery, with hints of the sun-soaked garrigue. It is a complex and layered olfactory experience that evolves with each swirl of the glass. Give it some time to breathe, and it will reward you with its purity and depth.

On the palate, this Gigondas reveals its full-bodied nature and concentrated mid-palate. The balance is flawless, showcasing the seamless integration of the different varietals that compose this proprietary blend. The rich red and blue fruit preserves dance on the tongue, accompanied by notes of licorice, exotic spice, and potpourri. The sweet boysenberry and cherry-cola flavors create a luscious depth that is complemented by hints of black cardamom.

The finish is impressively long, leaving an indelible impression of floral and mineral notes. The tannins are round and even, lending structure and harmony to the wine. While this wine can be enjoyed now, it will truly shine with 2-4 years of bottle age, and has the potential to age gracefully for two decades.

Renowned wine critic Jeb Dunnuck awarded this wine an exceptional score of 97 points, praising its purity and complexity. Wine Spectator also recognized its potential, awarding it an impressive 94 points and suggesting that it will benefit from some cellaring. Vinous, too, joined in the chorus of accolades, awarding it a stunning score of 96 points and noting its vibrant fruit and long, floral finish.

With only 888 cases made, this wine is a true gem from the Southern Rhone region of France. It is a testament to the skill and passion of the winemakers at Domaine Santa Duc. Pour yourself a glass of this extraordinary wine, and allow it to transport you to the sun-drenched vineyards of Gigondas.
