94pt Gigondas from Greatest Vintage Ever!
Yesterday we put out a comprehensive 2010 Rhone offer spurred on by the news in the Wine Spectator Insider that came out on Wednesday afternoon. As we stated yesterday it appears that the Wine Spectator is calling the 2010 Rhone Vintage the greatest ever!!! The Insider which normally covers multiple wine regions was dedicated solely to wines from the Southern Rhone Valley and the 2010 Vintage.
With the majority of the wines being Chateauneuf du Pape there was also a handful of Gigondas all of whom scored really well. In fact out of the six hot wines, four were Gigondas with ratings of 97 to 99 points! But sorry those are not the wines we have to offer at this point as those limited cuvee from St. Cosme are extremely difficult to come by and can get quite pricey.
But the other great domaine that was included in the Insider was Domaine Santa Duc. Their only wine in the 6 page Insider was their entry level Gigondas which received this amazing 94 point write up:
If you are a Gigondas fan this seems like a must have. Powerful and loaded this wine has plenty too it. To even make it more appealing we have to point out that our price is only $37.95 per bottle even-though the Wine Spectator has the release price at $43 per bottle. Top quality Gigondas below $40 is hard to come by and we have a small amount of this one exception that is due to our warehouse at the end of September/beginning of October. Reserve your bottles today before it is too late as this wine is bound to disappear with a stellar review like this.
