About This Wine

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. Aged In casks (foudres) and terracotta jars for 18 months.

World Wine – ‘Lurid violet color. Sexy, spice-accented aromas of raspberry, cherry preserves, incense and succulent flowers, along with a vibrant mineral element build in the glass. Offers concentrated yet lively red berry liqueur, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that stain the palate and display sharp clarity and mineral lift. Finishes with impressive nerviness and cut. Silky tannins frame the wine’s lingering, sweet fruit.’ - Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com
