- Closure: Cork
Notes sourced from M. Chapoutier
Quaternary terrace, with a surface of rolled stones coming from the former bed of the Rhône.The parcel from which this cuvée is produced possesses a complex and varied geological composition; these are the oldest Châteauneuf du Pape vines in existence (about 90 years of age).
The grapes are carefully selected during the harvest. This selection is compulsory and permits the selection of the best grapes.
In vats made of concrete covered with epoxy resin, because Grenache is very sensitive to oxidation. The grapes are 100% de-stemmed before being placed in vats. Fermentation lasts about 3 weeks at a temperature that varies from 30 to 33°C.
In oak barrels for 12 months, the same time in bottles.
Colour: Intensive garnet, developing into ruby red.
Nose: Complex and subtle, blackcurrant, plum, followed by roasted coffee, cinnamon, cherry, Morello cherry and liquorice.
Palate: Characteristic of the grape variety a good presence of the tannins, extremely delicate; ample, full-bodied, pulpy, warm and round.
