Les Halos de Jupiter is a partnership between Philippe Cambie and Michel Gassier from Chateau de Nages in Costieres de Nimes. For the Chateauneuf du Pape, Cambie wished to focus on his passion for Grenache, a grape he considers to be the most prestigious of Southern Rhone varietals.Thanks to his consultancy work across the region, Cambie identified several blocks where centenarian Grenache vines were producing grapes of extraordinary potential. This particular cuvee comes from one such terroir, located between Orange and Courthezon to the North East of the appellation.
No effort was spared, starting with successive picking in the vineyards, in order to get the desired levels of ripeness, with a severe sorting in the vineyards followed by a control on sorting table. The grapes were then destemmed and put into tanks without crushing. Gentle extractions with manual plunging (no pump overs) and strict temperature control (28C) pushed the length of ferments up to 5 weeks.The ensuing maturation took place in used “pieces Bourguignonnes” (Burgundian barrel type=228 L) and the wine was bottled without fining nor filtration.
Other reviews... "...An incredible effort, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape (100% Grenache) possesses a fabulous bouquet of kirsch liqueur, lavender, licorice, pepper, and spice. It reveals gobs of rich fruit, a full-bodied, opulent mouthfeel, terrific freshness and vibrancy (because of the vintage character), and a long finish. Drink it over the next 15+ years." 95 points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #185 - Oct 2009 size>
