Winemaker Notes

With an intense purple colour, fabulous and concentrated flavours in the nose, with scents of incense and blackberries jumping divinely out of the glass. Intense taste with body and a wonderful texture, pure and profound. 100% Grenache.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One of Deydier’s finest offerings (but very limited in availability as only 650 cases are produced) is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Craus Centenaires. Made from old vines (some are 114 years of age, although the specific percentage included in the blend was not specified) planted in eastern Chateauneuf du Pape, it is a blend of 80% tank-aged Grenache and 20% Syrah aged in small barrels. Abundant aromas and flavors of black raspberries intermixed with floral, crushed rock and forest floor notes are present in this dark plum/ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied, fleshy, succulent 2010. It possesses zesty acidity as well as the classic hallmark of freshness and precision offered by this vintage.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
A dark winey red, offering notes of steeped currant, black cherry preserves and fig paste, lined with singed apple wood and licorice root accents. A briary hint on the finish adds cut and depth. Best from 2016 through 2024.

In the late 19th century, Maurice Deydier, a cooper by trade, founded a small domaine in Chateauneuf du Pape. In the 1950s, his son Jean transformed the estate he had inherited from this father into the core of today’s Domaine Jean Deydier Les Clefs d’Or. Jean planted new vineyards and acquired others, bringing his holding to the size of 15 hectares. In 1957, Jean was awarded the medal of the Chevalier du Merite Agricole for “the loving, artisanal style of production that he brought to the development of his property, and the constant efforts he deployed to make it better.” Jean Deydier and his son Pierre in turn expanded the estate to its present size of 20 hectares of Chateauneuf du Pape and 12 hectares of Côtes du Rhone Massif d’Uchaux. Today, Pierre is aided by his daughter, Laurence and his nephew, Jean-Francois, who represent the sixth generation of the Deydier family.

Chateauneuf-du-Pape

Rhone, France

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, Chateauneuf-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 Chateauneuf-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 Chateauneuf-du-Pape is white. 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.
