Domaine Santa Duc-$35

 

Moving along from Chateauneuf, the next stop for any Grenache lover has to be Gigondas, where the wines tend to be blended like in Chateauneuf, but somehow speak more of Grenache. 

Domaine Santa Duc produces a full line of Gigondas, though the one most commonly encountered must be their Tradition bottling, which relies on 75% Grenache for its core. Much like the Vieux Donjon, the wines of Santa Duc tend to be a bit tough, very traditional and in need of aging, but with several years on them they blossom to reveal a rich, peppery, leathery accented palate full of fruit and silky tannins.

  • God bless you all at Snooth for obviously discovering my recommendation in a thread with a fellow reader a few months back, for the Domaine du Cayron Gigondas. I shall now struggle to put my hat on, and regret not ordering the 2010.
