St. Damien was an early Christian saint (martyred in the year 287 A.D.), considered the patron saint of doctors. There was a chapel to his honor in the tiny hamlet of La Baumette, just outside the village of Gigondas, where Joel Saurel lives. M. Saurel’s predecessors took the name Saint Damien for the domaine. Domaine St. Damien’s cuvées of Gigondas have become the reference for classic full-bodied yet fine Gigondas, with scores by all journalists being both consistent and high every vintage. La Louisianne-From a single parcel of Grenache planted in 1942, Mourvèdre planted in 1977 and Cinsault planted in 1951. Vinification with maceration for 5 to 6 weeks in concrete vats. Regular and pumping. Aged in 50hL foudre for 12 months. #cotesdurhone#wine#grenache#mouvedre @weygandtwines @peterweygandt
Looks can be deceiving, and fortunately so can a great deal of other things. The Australian Barossa Valley is well known for its #bigaussieshiraz - not so much for grape varieties such as the Mataro and Grenache. But the lovely people at @eperosawine have put that misconception to bed. From the rugged, rich soils of southern SA they deliver a complex, yet balanced, medium-bodied vino with a silky smooth finish that is perfect for this early Spring!! A billow of bramble, savoury fruits, and cinnamon are elegantly blended together with this wines signature fine tannin finish. You'll struggle to stop at one. One glass, one bottle, one more trip back down to @chippendalecellars we'll see you all soon 😉
😃Arranca la temporada para saborear uno de los platillos más representativos de la gastronomía nacional: ¡El Chile en Nogada!🤗 Mi recomendación es maridarlo con un buen vino afrutado, de preferencia que sean frutos rojos (como la granada) y acidez equilibrada.🍷 🍇Los vinos rosados de la uva Grenache son una buena opción.🍇 #vinoyparrilla#chileennogada#grenache#wine#vino#maridaje#pairing
