Winemaker's Notes

Very opulent, generous, with a most refined texture. Velvety Syrah, powerful and concentrated Mourvèdre… Wine that suits the canons of modernity, and, therefore, reassuring.

Critical Acclaim

"Structured and dense, but very racy, with a terrific graphite undertow that carries the braised fig, black tea, mesquite, chocolate and macerated currant fruit flavors. The finish is long and supple. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2024. 750 cases made."
94 Points

"The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (92% Grenache and the rest mostly Syrah with a touch of Mourvedre, and aged completely in old wood) has supple texture, a deep ruby/purple color, and a sweet nose of blackberries and cassis with some meatiness, new saddle leather, and spice box. The wine is full-bodied, opulent, and quite long. It should drink well for 10-25 years. 91-94"
94 Points

"This has a savory, meaty succulence, like a piece of grilled steak cut from the fatty edge. Smoke, leather and spice contribute to its dark, earthy feel. A red to save for wintertime meals of braised beef."

As the name suggests, the wine region was named after the new papal home, referring to the period of time in the 1300's when the pope resided in Avignon instead of Rome. Notable Facts...

Learn About Rhone Red Blends

The Rhone region of France has a delightful selection of red varieties. There are 22 grapes allowed in the Rhone AOC, about half of them red. Most of these varieties are used as secondary blending partners, often comprising less than 10% of the blend. The primary red players of Rhone blends are Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. Most wines from the Southern Rhone use Grenache as their...
