Winemaker Notes

A bright violet color while aromas of currant, dried fig and blackberry waft from the glass. This is a lively, fresh, focused wine, finishing with strong spiciness.

WS 91
Wine Spectator
Singed bay and savory notes lead the way, adding good energy to the core of black cherry and steeped plum fruit. An iron hint laces up the finish, lending this a racy feel overall. Nicely done. Drink now through 2018.

Wine Enthusiast
Yves Gras is one of the appellation’s standard bearers, and this mid-level bottling doesn’t disappoint. He’s toned down the use of oak in recent years, allowing more black cherry fruit to shine, matched by hints of grilled meat, mocha and black olive. It’s full-bodied, mouthfilling and harmonious, with a long, supple finish.

Domaine Santa Duc  Winery Image

By dint of faith and sheer hard work, the wine-growers of Gigondas have replaced the olive tree with the vine. They have thereby made a name for themselves. Here, wild and uncommon, a bird watches over the domain : the Grand-duc owl which sings, (known as "Canta duc" in Provencal), his name has become over time "Santa Duc."

Domaine Santa Duc was first established in 1874 in the Southern Rhone cru of Gigondas. Yves stopped selling the crop off to négociants in 1985 in favor of bottling his own wine instead. The winery was recently certified organic in 2012. Yves practices de-budding early in the growing season to lend rigor to the fruit, leaf-pulling to increase circulation, and early harvests to preserve freshness. Yves farms 12.5 hectares oflieux-dits throughout Gigondas. Generous, fruity and concentrated, the vines reflect the soil and the way in which they are produced.
