Santa Duc Gigondas Les Garancieres 2009
The wine is rich and focused with a complex leathery, red berry-cassis, oak-tinged and rustic spicy-herb nose. It gives off a beautiful but slight bouquet of sur-maturité, or super-ripe fruit. The palate is massive with deep extract flavors of cassis and cherry, and a chunky texture that has plenty of acidity. The wine finishes deep and layered, with a rustic grapey note.
