‘Discreetly floral with blueberry and liquorice - rounded and juicy. A discrete style of wine, but it’s well balanced and has a sense of drinkability. There’s a nice sense of tannic finesse and it has good sense of direction and focus. Firm and well balanced, without excesses. Eight different plots around Gigondas, biodynamically farmed, partly destemmed. Drinking Window 2021 - 2027. – Matt Walls, Decanter, 94/100

‘Ripe but understated style, with a mix of Damson plum, black cherry and blackberry fruit flavors mixed with wood spice and black tea notes. Stylish, pure finish. Drink now through 2033.’ – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 93/100

‘Moving to the two Gigondas, the 2018 Gigondas Aux Lieux-Dits offers a more medium-bodied, finesse-driven style as well as beautiful aromas of ripe strawberries, blackberries, spring flowers, and peppery garrigue. It has an almost Burgundian style yet is pure southern Rhône in its aromas and flavors. It is ideal for enjoying over the coming decade.’ – Jeb Dunnuck, 91/100

‘Currently more floral and expressive on the nose than the 2017, although less concentrated, the 2018 Gigondas Aux Lieux-Dits boasts hints of peppery spice, garrigue, a hint of roses and blueberry and raspberry fruit. It's medium to full-bodied, silky and taut, striking a good balance between ripeness and acidity, particularly noticeable on the long, mouthwatering finish.’ ‐ Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, 91/100

Producer information Founded in 1874, Domaine Santa Duc is one of the top producers in the Gigondas appellation. As Robert Parker writes, ‘For more than a decade, Domaine Santa Duc has been one of the jewels of Gigondas.’ Since its creation, six generations have succeeded each other at Domaine Santa Duc, each adding their own contribution to the wines. Today Benjamin Gras manages the domaine after taking over from his father, Yves Gras. The domaine focuses on Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsaut and they follow biodynamic and organic farming practices.
