Domaine Santa Duc 2018 Clos Derrière Vieille (Gigondas)

Editors' Choice

This Grenache-dominant blend (accented by 10% each of Mourvèdre and Syrah) is sourced from terraced slopes of limestone-rich marl on Santa Duc's monopole vineyard, Clos Derrière. Compared to the producer's other Gigondas bottlings, it's a distinctly floral, herbaceously perfumed red that contrasts potent blackberry and cherry flavors against streaks of smoked garrigue, fresh thyme and lavender. Weighty yet silken, the piercing red finishes on salty, chalky earth tones. Delicious young, the wine should drink gorgeously well past 2030. Anna Lee C. Iijima
