Santa Duc

Latest update : 8 September 2011.

The grenache, mourvèdre, syrah and cinsault grape varieties of Santa-Duc grow in two types of earth: the one being on the calcareous marls of the Cretaceous period on the area of land behind Vieille (the hillside behind the old hospices of the village); the other being on the poor red stony clay soils of Quaternary period; these areas are the Hautes garrigues, les Carbonnières, les Rocassières, Santa Duc, les Pailleroudas, les Goujard and Plane.

The combination of these contrasting soils gives balanced wines, both full-bodied and yet elegant.
