Santa Duc - Single vineyard wines from #Gigondas

17 January, by Sebastian Nickel

GIGONDAS «AUX LIEUX DITS»
BLEND

This Cuvee reflects all our locations in Gigondas. Its character reflects the assemblage of eight different vineyards and four typical grape varieties of the Rhône Valley. Alluvial soils, red and blue clay, as well as merge limestone, contribute as much to the taste and fragrance of this elegant and expressive wine, as do the grape varieties Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. In its youth, the wine shows an expression of fresh fruit and noble, vegetal aromas such as green tea. It usually develops a bouquet of exotic spices after several years of bottle storage.

GIGONDAS «LES HAUTES GARRIGUES»
SIGNLE VINEYARD SELECTION

In this historic terroir of the winery, we have been growing grapes for five generations. The stony clay soils from the quaternary offer a dry and barren substratum to the vines. Grenache loves these soils, but it also offers ideal growth conditions to Mourvèdre. A terroir that gives us deep, serious wines, with spices and dense tannin structure, as well as exceptional longevity.

GIGONDAS «CLOS DERRIÈRE VIEILLE»
SIGNLE VINEYARD SELECTION

The view from these vineyards situated 350 meters above sea level, just behind the hospice and the village’s church is unique. The vines grow on narrow, winding terraces, following the morphology of the steep limestone rocks of the Dentelles de Montmirail. After 18 months of aging in oak tanks, the wine shows a fine bouquet of fresh fruits and a delicate, flowery scent, supported by mineral freshness and fine tannins. An extraordinary taste experience, which fully shows the big influence of nature on the character of wines.
