Winemaker's Notes

The Tradition has nice red-purple color with shiny highlights. On the nose, the Chateauneuf-du-Pape spreads aromas of little red berries. it has a sweeping silky smooth mouth.

It will ideally be served with cooked or in sauce meats, especially game such as jugged hare or jugged boar.

Critical Acclaim

"Very dark and saturated in feel, with a sappy intensity to the plum, roasted fig, blackberry pâte de fruit and pastis notes. Lots of licorice and toasted apple wood accents rivet the finish, showing solid grip for the vintage."
92 Points

"Starting off the reds, and a superb effort in the vintage, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape is a textbook Southern Rhone that dishes out loads of spice, saddle leather, garrigue and herbs to go with a core of sweet red fruit. Medium-bodied, focused and fresh, with savory tannin on the finish, it’s a traditional Chateauneuf to drink over the coming 5-8 years."
92 Points

"Ruby-red. Fresh red berries and flowers on the highly fragrant nose. Seamless and sweet, offering energetic raspberry and cherry flavors and sneaky spiciness. Silky tannins give shape to a sappy, penetrating finish. Showing the best side of the vintage and already highly appealing.

Range: 90-92 Points"

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...
