Vineyard in a maze of walls

Vineyard in a maze of walls - Domaine Duclaux


The first walls in Côte-Rôtie were constructed during the times of the Romans.

Today, we continue to restore and keep-up these stone walls and cultivate to restore on these steep terraces.

Like this, history is perpetuated.

Wine spectator : Condrieu Les Caillets 2015 (94/100)

In 2014, for the first time, we bottled a white wine : Condrieu "Les Caillets" 2014. 

The wine spectator says about vintage 2014 : (91/100) Plump and slightly honeyed in feel, with corpulent pear, apple and fig favors, backed by hints of anise and honeydew melon. Pure and elegant despite the creamy, tropical profile. Drink now.

In 2015, for the second vintage, the wine spectator writes 94/100! A fresh style, with makrut lime, verbena, chamomile and honeysuckle notes leading the way, followed by juicy peach, apricot and nectarine flavors. A light fennel thread underscores the finnish.

Côte-Rôtie La Germine 2015 (93/100)

Blackberry fruits and bloody notes – a promising nose. Sustained juice, inky depth, fresh and long. Much promise. Drinking Window 2019 - 2036




* Tasted by Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate - Parker):

Duclaux's 2015 Cote Rotie La Germine (93/100) is another powerhouse Cote Rotie from this blockbuster vintage. Plum and cassis fruit is framed by hints of vanilla, while the velvety tannins are given focus and length on the finish by crisp acids. The overall effect is one of harmony and balance.
