The various locations boast four different types of terroir which has great impact on the complexity in the wines. There are lime-rich, cool locations as well as dry, warm sandy soil.

The vines are between 35 and 75 years old.

Harvest is done by hand.

This red Châteauneuf-du-Pape is made in the traditional way. The grapes harvested manually, are destemmed at 60%. Fermentation is followed by thermoregulation, it lasts from 25 to 35 days.

The wines are aged in oak barrels, in 1/2 muids, in concrete vats and barrels over a period of 12 months.

Tasting Note

A rainy spring followed by a hot and dry summer brings balance and finesse to Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tradition 2019. Beautiful aromas of black fruits, raspberry, blackcurrant, and prune, with pretty tannins, silky and smooth, and a long creamy finish. A good ageing potential with high acidity and a moderate alcohol content.

Jeb Dunnuck

The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape boasts a vivid purple hue as well as a complex bouquet of red, blue, and black fruits as well as notes of flowers, spice, and peppery garrigue. It actually reminds me of the Cuvée Mon Aïeul with its ripe yet elegant profile. Full-bodied, balanced, and lengthy, it’s going to offer loads of pleasure over the coming 10-15 years. 94 Points, November 2021.

Wine Advocate

A blend sourced from numerous sites across the appellation, the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape is full-bodied and plush, loaded with notes of asphalt, blackberries and black olives. Plush and easy to drink, this blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault may be consumed young or aged up to a decade. 92 Points, Joe Czerwinski, May 2022

Wine Spectator

Juicy and direct, with bright cassis and cherry compote notes and red licorice and sweet tobacco flavors. Offers a flash of garrigue that keeps it honest through the finish, with good energy adding length. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2032. 2,900 cases made; 800 cases imported. 92 Points, James Molesworth, December 2021

Food Pairing

A great pairing to charcuterie, red meat, game, a mushroom fricassee and cheeses.
