2020 DOMAINE SANTA DUC GIGONDAS AUX LIEUX-DITS

Tasting Notes from Wine Enthusiast,Freshly cut Gala apple, green pear, Bing cherries, dried cranberries and black plum mingle with savory aromas of fresh bacon, black olives and rose in the glass. The palate is decadently alluring and perfectly mirrors the pure fruit core with beautiful poise, and lingers well through its long finish. Delicious and enjoyable with a proper decant, but this should benefit from cellaring well through 2030+”. WINE ENTHUSIAST 96 POINTS

Tasting Notes from Vinous – Antonio Galloni,Brilliant ruby. Intensely perfumed, mineral- and spice-driven aromas of ripe red and blue fruit and potpourri show sharp definition; suggestions of woodsmoke and incense build in the glass. Shows outstanding depth as well as energy on the palate, offering powerful raspberry, kirsch and floral pastille flavors and a strong note of exotic spices. It finishes with an alluring sweetness and harmonious tannins that lend shape to a wonderfully long, spice- and floral-accented finish.” VINOUS 96 POINTS
