More info

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 honour in the tiny hamlet of La Baumette, just outside the village of Gigondas, where Joel Saurel, the owner of the domaine, lives. Joel Saurel's ancestors thus took the name Saint Damien for the domaine.

La Baumette is the “hot corner” of the Gigondas appellation – great exposures and “galets roulées” rocks, like in Chateauneuf. Some of the oldest vines of the appellation are in this area, and Joel Saurel owns a good proportion of them that are over 100 years old.
