Cotes du Rhone 2009 Les Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Santa Duc
Domaine Santa Duc is widely renowned for their amazingly lush Gigondas. Winemaker Yves Gras is one of the most talented in the region and his handling of these Southern Rhone varietals brings out their exotic intensity. From the outstanding 2009 vintage, this wine is sourced from four estate vineyards in different CDR Villages; Rasteaux, Seguret, Vacqueyras and Rouaix. The vineyards all boast old vine plantings averaging 40+ years of age. A very low yield blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, the lots are vinified separately and aged in tank and then bottled unfiltered to retain the intensity and nuance. Steve Tanzer and Wine Enthusiast Magazine both scored it 90 points. WE said "Full bodied and creamy in texture, this is a big, ripe wine, but it never goes over the edge into raisins. Black olives, leather and chocolate finish long, potent and dusty. Drink now–2016."

    Comments about Cotes du Rhone 2009 Les Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Santa Duc:

    It doesn't carry the Villages designation, but it sure feels like one. Ripe red fruits on the nose are surrounded by dried herbal and fig notes. It has a very pleasant mouth feel with good balance and structure. Drinking quite well as is.

    • Pairs Well With:
    • Beef, Game
