Intensity and Complexity
“Today, the wine that I find myself turning to most often is Châteauneuf-du-Pape.” – Robert Parker
Chateauneuf du Pape (translated to “The Pope’s New Castle”) takes its name from the time when the Pope moved to Avignon in 1309. With more than 8,000 acres under vine, Chateauneuf du Pape is the largest appellation in Rhone and there is an enormous diversity of winemaking styles among the producers, creating both appealing, easy-to-understand fruit-filled wines as well as wines of greater intensity and gravitas.
A bottle of Châteauneuf-du-Pape is instantly recognizable by the papal coat of arms embossed on the glass bottle. Grenache is the dominant grape by far and close to 75% of the vineyards in Chateauneuf du Pape are planted to Grenache. After Grenache, the next two important grapes used to produce blends in Chateauneuf du Pape are Syrah and Mourvedre. These wines can be powerful, rich, full-bodied and concentrated enough to evolve for 15 to 25 years.
