JD97-99WA96-99

Santa Duc is on such an incredible roll. Their “Pied de Baud” comes from a little single-hectare old-vine plot surrounded by forest. The Wine Advocate called this gorgeous, biodynamically farmed wine “full-bodied yet positively light, airy and elegant. Dried spices and licorice notes provide complexity to the cherry and plum fruit, wrapped together in a lovely, long, silky finish.” Swirl this with braised lamb shanks and you’ll be talking about it for years to come.

Wine Advocate

One of my favorite wines in the cellar, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Pied de Baud is full-bodied yet positively light, airy and elegant. Dried spices and licorice notes provide complexity to the cherry and plum fruit, wrapped together in a lovely, long, silky finish.
