A classic, solid, Châteauneuf-du-Pape from parcels in the north of this prestigious appellation.
ProductionThe grapes are de-stemmed and macerated in temperature-controlled vats for around 30 days with two rack-and-return operations at the start of fermentation. This is followed by two pumping-over operations per day. Ageing lasts for 12 months: 50% of the wine aged in vat, 50% in 450L barrels used for 1 or 2 previous vintages. Vat and barrel aged elements are then blended before bottlingTasting NoteGood fruit concentration and weight with an open quality. Complex notes of plums and black cherries with a hint of cocoa and cloves.
Grenache 50% , Syrah 40% , Mourvèdre 10%
