My favorite of the trio, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Petits Pieds D'Armand is magical stuff – let’s hope it shows this well from bottle! Black raspberries, blueberries, wildflowers, white pepper, garrigue, and all kinds of Southern Rhône goodness emerge from the glass, and it's full-bodied, with a deep, layered mouthfeel, gorgeous tannins, and a great finish. It's just about overflowing with Provençal charm and is a head-turning Châteauneuf du Pape in the making!
Range: 96-98
V 94
Vinous

Shimmering ruby-red. Intensely perfumed red/blue fruit preserve, exotic spice, potpourri and garrigue qualities on the expansive nose. Palate-staining raspberry, boysenberry, fruitcake and candied lavender flavors deftly combine heft and finesse. Velvety and seamless in texture, presenting a strikingly long, penetrating and gently tannic finish that emphatically repeats the blue fruit and floral notes.

Before 2007 there was only one brasserie in the centre of Chateauneuf du Pape, La Mule du Pape. In 2007 Olivier Hillaire has purchaced the boulangerie on the other site of the street and runs here another brasserie. At lunch time you can meet him here serving the guests with the same engagement as he shows talking about his wines.

As Hillaire doesn't have his own cellars yet, his wines are aged in a big building in Sorgues former used to store apples. Several producers use this place, among them Henri Bonneau and André Brunel

Famous for its full-bodied, seductive and spicy reds with flavor and aroma characteristics reminiscent of black cherry, baked raspberry, garrigue, olive tapenade, lavender and baking spice, Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the leading sub-appellation of the southern Rhône River Valley. Large pebbles resembling river rocks, called "galets" in French, dominate most of the terrain. The stones hold heat and reflect it back up to the low-lying gobelet-trained vines. Though the galets are typical, they are not prominent in every vineyard. Chateau Rayas is the most obvious deviation with very sandy soil.

According to law, eighteen grape varieties are allowed in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and most wines are blends of some mix of these. For reds, Grenache is the star player with Mourvedre and Syrah coming typically second. Others used include Cinsault, Counoise and occasionally Muscardin, Vaccarèse, Picquepoul Noir and Terret Noir.

Only about 6-7% of wine from Châteauneuf-du-Pape is white wine. Blends and single-varietal bottlings are typically based on the soft and floral Grenache Blanc but Clairette, Bourboulenc and Roussanne are grown with some significance.

The wine of Chateauneuf-du-Pape takes its name from the relocation of the papal court to Avignon. The lore says that after moving in 1309, Pope Clément V (after whom Chateau Pape-Clément in Pessac-Léognan is named) ordered that vines were planted. But it was actually his successor, John XXII, who established the vineyards. The name however, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, translated as "the pope's new castle," didn’t really stick until the 19th century.

Grenache thrives in any warm, Mediterranean climate where ample sunlight allows its clusters to achieve full phenolic ripeness. While Grenache's birthplace is Spain (there called Garnacha), today it is more recognized as the key player in the red blends of the Southern Rhône, namely Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône and its villages. Somm Secret—The Italian island of Sardinia produces bold, rustic, single varietal Grenache (there called Cannonau). California, Washington and Australia have achieved found success with Grenache, both flying solo and in blends.
