Detailed information

Vintage

Châteauneuf du Pape is the most prestigious Southern Rhône appellation. The wines derive their uniqueness from several sources. First, there are the round red and cream-colored stones or ”galets” left in the soil by ancient Alpine glaciers. During the day, these stones absorb the heat and then reflect it onto the vines at night, thus helping the grapes fully mature. In addition, the vines here benefit from the cleansing Mistral wind , which keeps them dry and healthy.

Grape varieties

Clairette, Grenache blanc, Roussanne
