Description

The Clos des Papes Chateauneuf-Du-Pape is based on a majority of Grenache (65%), with smaller quantities of Mouvèdre (20%) and Syrah (10%). The remainder of the blend consists of small amounts of some of the lesser-known varietals approved in the appellation, namely Muscardin, Counoise and Vacarèse. The wines spend their infancy in tank and are then transferred to large foudres for an élevage which lasts approximately 14-15 months.

Tasting Note

A stunner, with a gorgeous cassis aroma that soars from the glass, reinforced by a core of cherry and plum fruit, warm ganache and well-roasted apple wood notes. Hefty, but suave and seamless. The finish lets graphite and licorice elements glide through. The structure is dense, polished and perfectly integrated, resulting in lovely length.
