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 vines are grown in the limestone and clay soils of the parcels situated on the hillside
terraces of Gigondas. The vines are grown in the named plot or 'lieu dit' of
Souteyrades, which is situated in the south of the appellation. The Grenache vines date
back to 1948 and the Mourvèdre vines to 1977, these old vines are naturally lowyielding and produce rich, concentrated juice. The vineyard is certified organic; no
chemical pesticides or herbicides are used, instead natural techniques are employed
to preserve the environment and the biodiversity of the vineyard.
Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness. They then underwent a long six week
fermentation with indigenous yeasts in concrete vats. The resulting wine was matured
for 12 months in oak barrels and was bottled without any fining and just a gentle
filtration.
Tasting Note
This full-bodied, layered and rich wine has intense flavours of warm fig, dark chocolate
and spicy fruitcake. Complex and powerful on the palate with fine-grained tannins and
