Domaine Santa Duc Gigondas 'Aux Lieux Dits' 2016
Grenache 75%, Syrah 15%, Mourvèdre 5%, Cinsault 5%.
This cuvee is a reflection of all Santa Duc's locations in Gigondas. The grape varieties of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault are grown on alluvial soils, red and blue clay, as well as marl lime. Each terroir contributes to the overall picture with its character. Typically characterised by fresh fruits and floral aromas, it will develop a bouquet of exotic spices after a few years in the cellar.
|Varietal(s)||Grenache Shiraz/Syrah Mourvèdre Cinsault|

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – ‘The 2016 Gigondas Aux Lieux Dits had been blended at the time of my visit, but not yet bottled. It looks reassuringly close to how I remember it from last year, with pronounced garrigue notes joined by hints of licorice and blackberries. It's full-bodied, creamy textured and supple, with a long, velvety finish. Drink: 2019-2027’
In a mixed or straight case: $56.99
