Brothers Benjamin & David Duclaux are fourth-generation Côte Rôtie farmers. They manually work steep, narrow-terraced, gneiss-rich vineyards flanking the Tupin & Semons hillsides at the southern end of the appelation. The Domaine is consistently cited in the wine press as among the very best of small producers in Côte Rôtie, and their wines express the Domaine’s terroir with precision, purity, and finesse. To preserve the life of the vineyard’s rich gneiss soil, the Duclaux brothers farm without the use of pesticides. With the 2014 vintage, the Duclaux brothers also started bottling a tiny-production Condrieu, named after their great-grandfather, Frédéric, who bought the Domaine in 1928.
