Tasting of Santa Duc Gigondas 2017 vintage

Aux Lieux Dits 2017
A little hesitant at first, the wine quickly finds its ease in the glass. Red fruit on the nose, a little nougat… On the palate it quickly reveals its real assets: dark fruits, sweet spices, as well as a vivid freshness, together with fine and well integrated tannins. Young, crisp and fiery, a beautiful ambassador of the vintage in Gigondas.

Clos Derrière Vieille 2017
This wine from a vineyard perched above the medieval village of Gigondas presents typical characteristics common to high altitude terroirs. Straight, long and fine, with tannins of remarkable accuracy, driven by crystalline minerality coming directly from the limestone rocks of the Dentelles de Montmirail. The rich and intense bouquet presents a red fruit coulis, a little bay leaf, as well as fresh undergrowth ... A wine of real delicacy. This Gigondas reaches out to Burgundy.

Hautes Garrigues 2017
Always faithful to its personality, this cuvée brings together all the facets of Mediterranean landscapes: light and bright colours, balsamic smells of the surrounding flora, the generosity and mildness of the climate. Rich and powerful, its strength is balanced by the freshness of the structuring and precise tannins, coated with striking softness. Ripe and dried fruit, spices, rosemary... You may savour this wine for years to come.
