Domaine Saint Damien Plan de Dieu Vielles Vignes Cotes du Rhône Villages Bio 2019

Opulent and spicy with generous and layered flavours
of red fruits and garrigue. A mini Gigondas from this
award winning producer.


Producer Note
Saint Damien was an early Christian saint (martyred in the year 287 A.D.), who was
considered to be the patron saint of doctors. A chapel was built in his honour in the
tiny hamlet of La Baumette, just outside the village of Gigondas, where Joel Saurel
the owner of the domain lives. In 1979, the name Saint Damien was introduced into
the name of the domain. Four generations have worked on this family estate since
1821 and in 2013 Romain joined his father on the estate. It has been certified organic
since 2012.


Vineyard
The vineyards are located in the relatively new appellation of Plan de Dieu, which
translates as Plan of God in English. Despite the first historical mentions of the "Plan
Dei", which date back to a parchment from 1326, the lieu-dit of Plan de Dieu was
only designated a red wine producing appellation in 2005. The climate here is
classic Mediterranean with the additional influence of the Mistral winds. The terroir sits
on an alluvial plateau with calcareous gravel, which retains water, helping to
preserve the vines during the hot and often arid summer months.


Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity and were then vinified for 30 days in
the traditional manner, followed by eight months ageing in concrete vats. Bottled
without fining or filtration.


Tasting Note
An opulent and spicy full flavoured wine, with layered flavours of prunes and
garrigue from this award-winning producer.
