Winemaker Notes

"Really well-built, with muscular layers of plum and fig sauce backed by well-integrated toast, licorice and spice notes. The long, juicy finish is packed for now, but shows good definition. Should age nicely. 90 percent Grenache, with the rest Syrah, Cinsault and others. Drink now through 2012. 875 cases made." 91 Points,

Young Philippe Bravay, whom Robert Parker in Issue 131 of The Wine Advocate say "is unquestionable one of Chateauneuf du Pape’s up and coming stars" and is now taking over the family domaine. He is extremely dedicated to preserving the unique traditions and special characteristics that Chateauneuf brings to the world. The domaine is tiny, only 5 ½ hectares of which over half is on vines approaching 100 years old, all situated in the lieu-dit Ferrand. He uses organic growing techniques, limits yields strictly (his Cotes du Rhone, even, is less than 2 1/2 tons to the acre yields, and the Chateauneuf du Pape even less) and vinifies traditionally.

The Cotes du Rhone vines were planted between 1933 and 1946, and consist of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Cinsault. It is, again as Mr. Parker states "a beautiful example of how much flavor, character, and complexity can be packed into a Cotes du Rhone".

The Chateauneuf du Pape is 90% Grenache, the vines ranging in age from 60 to 100 years of age, and the balance the other twelve Chateauneuf varietals. From these he obtains superb natural ripeness, usually in excess of 14%. The vinification is traditional and the aging is for the most part in large oak foudre, but also a portion in barrique, however no new oak.

Typically thought of as a baby Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the term Côtes du Rhone actually doesn’t merely apply to the flatter outskirts of the major southern Rhône appellations, it also includes the fringes of well-respected northern Rhône appellations. White can be produced under the appellation name, but very little is actually made.

The region offers some of the best values in France and even some first-rate and age-worthy reds. Red varieties include most of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape varieties like Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, and Counoise, as well as Carignan. White grapes grown include Grenache blanc, Roussanne and Viognier, among others.
