Domaine Saint Gayan Six Pack
“Top-class Gigondas domaine. Very long-lived wines, from the heart of the matter.”
John Livingstone-Learmonth, drinkrhone.com
Jean-Pierre Meffre's family has been making wine in the Vaucluse since the 17th century and their Gigondas - made from a traditional blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre that is vinified in cement vats – is the reference point for the appellation (which became a Cru in 1971). We are delighted to feature three great vintages of this wine in our mixed case, as well as reds from their Rasteau (elevated to Cru status in 2010) and Côtes-du-Rhône vines holdings. The white from the village of Sablet is a fleshy, aromatic blend of Viognier, Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache and Roussanne. According to Rhône wine guru, John-Livingstone-Learmonth, it is 'always good'.
N.B: the 'Origine' name was introduced to their principal Gigondas label from the 2010 vintage.
This six-bottle mixed case includes one bottle each of:
Côtes-du-Rhône 'Sablet' 2016
Côtes-du-Rhône 'Trescartes' 2016
Gigondas 'Origine' 2015
"...the 2015 Gigondas Origine showcases cherries and red plums, medium to full body and supple tannins, picking up a dusting of cinnamon on the long finish. 89-91/100, drink 2017-2025."

"Youthful purple. Heady, highly perfumed bouquet evokes black and blue fruits, Indian spices and lavender. Supple and juicy, with very good depth and energy to its blackberry and mulberry flavors. Given spine by tangy acidity but finishes smooth and seamless, with echoing floral and spice notes. 90-92/100."

"Saint Gayan's 2005 Gigondas was impressive. A blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre that saw a traditional vinification (no destemming) and aging in foudre and demi-muids, it has a concentrated, full and layered feel to go with lots of cassis, blackberry, chocolate and crushed rock-like aromas and flavors. I love the fruit quality here, and this textured, balanced Gigondas can be enjoyed anytime over the coming 4-5 years. 91/100, drink 2015-2020."
