Domaine Santa Duc : Le Pied de Baud 2017

An intense and balanced Châteauneuf-du-Pape red wine

The estate

Located in the foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail mountain chain, Domaine Santa Duc has been writing its family history since 1874. At the helm of the estate since 1985, Yves Gras and his son Benjamin produce wines which, through their quality and refinement, greatly contribute to the glowing international reputation of Rhône Valley wines.

Produced using organic and biodynamic practices since 2016, these exceptional terroirs give rise to fine wines that harmoniously express the identity of emblematic appellations such as Gigondas, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Vacqueyras and Côtes du Rhône.

The vineyard

Domaine Santa Duc's 2017 Le Pied de Baud is a Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine made from a one-hectare vineyard located in the eponymous locality. The old vines are 90 years old on average and are planted on a soil composed of sand, clay and limestone.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand and are first sorted on the vine and then on a sorting table. Partial destemming, the percentage of which varies depending on the vintage. The grapes are vatted by gravity before undergoing a 20 to 30-day fermentation in stainless steel vats, with daily pumping over and punching down. Pressing in a pneumatic press followed by malolactic fermentation in vats. Aged for 18 months in oak tuns and clay jars before bottling without fining or filtration.

The blend

Grenache

Mourvèdre
