history
The winery, passed from generation to generation since the 14th century, extends over 37 acres of sand and large pebbles, nearly half of which is planted with one-hundred-year-old Grenache. "We put our heart and soul into winemaking and are deeply-rooted in Châteauneuf du Pape. We are proud of our heritage, down-to-earth, and hard working, and aim to offer you the best possible wine, while continually striving for excellence".
Vineyard
Rigorous bud pruning. The picking is entirely by hand, with sorting in the vineyard and again in the cellar.
Winemaking
Gravity-flow underground winery for gentle handling. Wine-making in tulip-shaped concrete tanks. Destemming of underripe stalks. The wine stays on the skins for over 4 weeks. Gentle extractions. Aging in foudres, 600-liter barrels and cement egg for 20 months. The wine is not filtered before bottling.
Tasting notes
From the 100-year-old Terres Blanches plot on early-ripening slopes. Wine from these grapes has considerable finesse and silkiness. From the Cabrieres plot, which gives fruit, power, color and cocoa aromas
