This wine’s beautiful deep, dark colour reveals aromas of jammy fruit and prune underscored by a touch of liquorice and roasted notes. Structured and full-bodied on the palate with well-integrated tannins. This is a rich, delectable wine with great ageing potential.”

Vineyard Notes
“I have taken great care to select the terroirs because what is in the glass results primarily from the quality of the vines. The soil in the vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape is unique in that it contains rounded stones that absorb the warmth of the sun during the day and heat the vines’ roots during the night, which makes it ideal for viticulture.
Production Notes
The cuvées I have selected undergo meticulous work during the vinification and ageing processes. I have chosen to ferment the grapes under monitored temperatures with daily pumping over as well as rack and return, followed by barrel ageing which lends extra complexity to the wine.
Winemaker Notes
Though thirteen different varieties of grapes, including seven red varieties, are authorized for this appellation, I have chosen four which will lend a multitude of aromas and flavours to this Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Grenache gives smoothness and richness, Cinsault fruit and freshness, while Syrah gives lovely length which is balanced by the tannins of the Mourvèdre grapes.
Other Notes
Our oenologist, Sylvain Colson, has put all of his expertise into choosing the best wines for producing a complex, structured Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
