    Winemaker Notes

    Created in 1928, Domaine Duclaux represent the fourth generation of winegrowers. The 14 acre vineyards of Domain Duclaux are entirely situated in Tupin et Semons and in the southern sector of Côte-Rôtie.

    This is a ridiculous value in old world Syrah from Cote Rotie. If you're a fan of intensely flavored, ageworthy reds, you can't go wrong with this bottle.

    Made from 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier from 30 year old estate grown vines. Domaine Duclaux is very conscious of the richness of soil and the terroir of Côte-Rôtie and use no insecticide or acaricide. All work is done by hand, without a tractor. Less than 5 people work during the year in the 5.5 hectares of the Domaine Duclaux.

    Domaine Duclaux
    The Duclaux Family is one of the oldest in Châteauneuf du Pape. This family built up its domain through the centuries and was one of the first founder members of the appellation association in 1904.

    The Quiot and Duclaux families built up bounds and family connections over the years. The last representative of this family, Emmeline Latour, died on 23rd April 2001. Godmother of Florence and Jean-Baptiste Quiot, she bequeated them this wonderful Domaine.

    Sonoma County

    View all wine

    Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for nearly every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa, the region only produces about half the amount of wine, but what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in both quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

    Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River and Sonoma Valleys, Carneros, and Fort Ross-Seaview. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

    Cabernet Franc

    View all wine

    The subtler and more delicate of the Cabernets, Cabernet Franc is the proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon and shares many of the structural elements of Bordeaux’s cornerstone variety. In Bordeaux, Cabernet Franc is often planted as an insurance policy against its later-ripening offspring, as it is more likely to thrive in a difficult harvest. But don’t mistake Cabernet Franc for merely a supporting player—this grape variety produces outstanding wines on its own or as the dominant component of a blend. It produces perhaps its most alluring wines in France’s Loire Valley, in the regions of Chinon, Bourgueil, and Saumur-Champigny, where brighter, riper wines can be achieved. Outside of France, Cabernet Franc has performed quite well in parts of California, New York, and Virginia.

    In the Glass

    Paler, lighter, crisper, softer, and much more aromatic than its progeny, Cabernet Franc typically tastes of red raspberries, cherries, and herbs, with a stunning perfume of violets, tobacco, and spice.

    Perfect Pairings

    Mouthwatering acidity makes Cabernet Franc an incredibly food-friendly wine, helping to cut through the richness of fatty meat dishes. It especially shines in tandem with lamb, and its affinity for the spice cabinet allows it to pair perfectly with Chinese dishes prepared with Szechuan pepper and five-spice.

    Sommelier Secrets

    Under-ripe Cabernet Franc can be leafy and green with harsh tannins and mouth-searing acidity, so it is best to avoid highly spiced curries and fiery chili dishes.
