    Cuvée presentation

    Renowned for its wines from Gigondas, Domaine Santa Duc produces a very fine Côtes-du-Rhône, a blend of parcels located in the communes of Vacqueyras, Rasteau, Roaix and Séguret. The name of this cuvée, Les Quatre Terres, thus makes perfect sense. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Cinsault and Clairette are grown organically, harvested by hand and sorted very carefully before gently maceration. The wine is aged on its lees in both foudres and old oak barrels. An elegant, silky and mouth-watering wine, it can be enjoyed young on the fruit with succulent grilled meat and homemade ratatouille.

    Information about domain François Villard

    François Villard trained as a chef before setting up his domaine in 1989. Today, his vineyatrd spans 30 hectares over nearly all the appellations in the region. François also took part in a joint project called Vins de Vienne: him and two other master vignerons (Yves Cuilleron and Pierre Gaillard) replanted the very old Seyssuel vineyard. François loves to build, and with each vintage he creates new vats for his wine that he christens with a comical name, normally a play on words. He produces 400,000 bottles a year and is adored by enthusiasts and critics alike.
