We love this luminous, super-spicy, fruity Gigondas that Jeb Dunnuck remarked is “Always the richest, most powerful wine in the [Santa Duc] lineup…[it] offers a rocking bouquet of black cherries, blackberries, bouquet garni, pepper, and fresh earth. Full-bodied, beautifully concentrated.” This will pair perfectly with a saddle of venison with herbes de provence.

Jeb Dunnuck

Always the richest, most powerful wine in the lineup, the 2016 Gigondas Hautes Garrigues offers a rocking bouquet of black cherries, blackberries, bouquet garni, pepper, and fresh earth. Full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and with building tannins, it’s certainly a more fresh, stylish example of this cuvée and is a perfect wine from readers wanting to understand the changes that have happened at this estate over the past decade or so. Give this beauty 2-4 years of bottle age and enjoy it over the following decade.
