I can also save a dollar by taking some Santa Duc - here are 4 reasons: 1) The product of 50 year old vines, harvested very late, & bottled unfiltered; (2) Nice cepage of 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre; (3) The grapes in the blend came from every part of the southern Rhone: 25% Vacqueyras, 25% Rasteau, 25% Seguret, 25% Rouaix, while technically only a Cotes du Rhone, the grapes from the best desginated villages in the appellation. ; (4) Grapes harvested at 2.5 tons per acre - incredibly low yield for a wine of $15.


Thanks for the analysis Nicos, very helpful. Smile
