Yves Gras of Domaine Santa Duc on his Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2011

“Habemus Papam”

"You could never compare it to the type of wine we make in Gigondas. Needless also to ask which one is better. They are different, that’s all. I like working with terroirs that mark the wine. You only have to provide guidance and support.

This is my second vintage in Châteauneuf du Pape. So one might say that I am discovering this wine at the same time as you do. To me, this wine has a very deep, multi-layered taste, like in 2010. Its tannins are very powerful, without ever getting rough or even being predominant. They are always wrapped into smoothness and carried by a fine acidity.

It’s rather a wine that expresses through length than width."
