Winemaker's Notes:

This cuvee is a true homage to Philippe Cambie's passion for Grenache, Chateauneuf's most emblematic varietal. Very elegant and harmonious, this wine displays a perfect balance between power and finesse.
My Notes:

About Les Halos de Jupiter:

Les Halos de Jupiter is a project of the highly renowned southern Rhone oenologist Philippe Cambie as well as the proprietor of Chateau Nages, Michel Gassier.

According to poets, Jupiter (Zeus in Greek) is the father, the king of all gods and humans. He rules on mount Olympus and his power is such that he can shake the entire universe by a simple nod of the head. He also represents the spiritual world, organizes the exterior world and is the god of all physical, moral and social rules. According to Mircea Eliade, he is the archetypical head of a patriarchal family.

To Les Halos de Jupiter, Grenache is the king of all grapes and the natural leader of all Rhone varietals. The halo symbolizes the appellations that best express its personality.
