For the summer, I spontaneously think about three wines.
Les Grands Calcaires 2015: The quartet Clairette, Ugni blanc, Picpoul and Bourboulenc gives an incredible energy to the wine, while the Grenache blanc and Viognier bring in juiciness and a fine perfume. The wine makes me dream of a shaded terrace and grilled fish.
Santa Duc Les Plans Rosé 2016: Bright, delicate colour, ripe, red fruits, a handful of citrus, fresh and gentle on the palate ... Perfect for an aperitif and summer cuisine.
Les Quattre Terres 2015: This wine always surprises me with its exuberant scent of red and black fruits, spices and herbs of Provence. An incredible nose! On the palate it is soft and elegant, with crisp acidity and delicate tannins on the finish. Enjoy now or store for another 4 to 5 years in the cellar. Unbeatable to grilled lamb cutlets and ratatouille!
The “stars” among the Terroir wines of Santa Duc? “Les Saintes Vierges” from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, vintage 2014, as well as the Gigondas “Grand Grenache” 2012. The first impresses with its elegant and fine tannin structure. Already much drinking fun today, but with high ageing potential. The second one issues from a great vintage in the Rhône valley and reaches full drinking ripeness now. Its flavours and creaminess on the palate invite you to meditate.
