If you love the powerful, Grenache-based wines of the Rhone, you WILL NOT be disappointed. This is one spectacular bottle. Think Chateauneuf but dialed up big time, with more power, minerality, and layered depth. A few choice excerpts from all the big scoring writeups:
”Full-bodied, rich, velvety and intense without being overbearing, it’s a tremendous effort…” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“…a rocking bouquet of black cherries, blackberries, bouquet garni, pepper, and fresh earth. Full-bodied, beautifully concentrated…” – Jeb Dunnuck
“Shows unlikely finesse for its heft and finishes extremely long and precise…” – Vinous
“The Domaine Santa Duc has emerged in just over a decade as the number one estate for quality in Gigondas…Is this the finest estate in Gigondas?” – Robert M. Parker, Jr.
