2020 Gigondas “Terrasse du Diable”

Domaine Les Pallières
Discount Eligible $48.00
SOLD OUT

Much mystique remains in the Terrasse du Diable. On the surface is an abundance of violets and velvet, amid a cooling sensation of a cold spring on a hot day. Below the surface lurks a bitter austerity, and hints of layers of surprises to be revealed over time.

Chris Santini

Inspiring Thirst

A good doctor prescribed the wine of Nuits-Saint-Georges to the Sun King, Louis XIV, when he suffered an unknown maladie. When the king’s health was restored the tasty remedy enjoyed a vogue at court. Lord, send me a doctor like that!
