Saint Damien Gigondas 2018 from Southern Rhone - Gigondas is the sub region.
Nose is deliciously inviting while exuding elegance. On the palate excellent structure, on first sip the acid is feeling a touch too prominent but levels in a second. As I suck the air through it, it just sings – elegant, layered, generous yet light on its feet. Very French – dark berries but texturally has its shoulders back. This is a very good wine. I’m 2 mins in but I’ll put all my money on decanting being a great idea.
