Domaine Santa Duc Clos Derriere Vieille Gigondas 2019

SKU: 3103000506149581Categories: ,


The wines from this terroir have diaphanous aromas of bright fruit and delicate floral notes. They offer a mineral freshness and lacy tannins that bear witness to the high proportion of limestone present in the marl. An exquisite gustatory experience that offers a clear demonstration of the power of nature to link a wine to its place of origin. Palate coating fruit and very fine tannins in abundance. A highly structural wine, where the acidity, tannin and alcohol are really to the fore, the fruit buried within. I expect it to take on fruit weight over time however and grow into the structure. Full-bodied, fresh, textural and highly fragrant. Co-planted on limestone marls behind the village. 60% whole bunch, aged in Stockinger foudres except for 20% that is aged in terracotta amphorae. There’s nice purity here, displaying a core of cassis and plum reduction notes coursing through, while light licorice, applewood and red tea hints run along the edges. Has a savory kick on the finish, with a subtle minerality lending length. Grenache, Syrah and Mourv dre. Best from 2023 through 2036. The 2019 Gigondas Clos Derri re Vieille is more floral, almost tropical, with rose petal, strawberry, and peppery notes in a medium to full-bodied, balanced package. It’s lively and fresh, with an exotic style that should show more classic Gigondas character with 2-3 years of bottle age. Given its balance and tannins, it should age gracefully. Best after 2024.
