Châteauneuf-du-pape Wine

Chateauneuf du Pape

Chateauneuf du Pape is the best-known appellation in the Southern Rhone. It takes its name from the Pope’s residence in Avignon during the 14th Century; it translates roughly as “the Pope’s new castle.”

The wines are typically full-bodied, ripe reds, though some white wine is made from Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Roussanne, and Bourboulenc. About 13 grape varieties are permitted, but Grenache is the most important by a wide margin. Other widely planted ones include Mourvedre, Syrah, and Cinsaut. Ch. de Beaucastel, one of the best producers of Chateaneuf du Pape, makes a point of cultivating all 13 permitted varieties.

  • Chateau de Saint Cosme Chateauneuf du Pape 2009


    Murky dark plum color. Nose of dried fruit. Very serious hit of candied fruit on entrythink of a combination of cherry and apricot. Then a powdery sensation seems to cover my tongueprobably, from tannin. Back palate sensation is sour and, slightly, bitter. Overall, to me this wine is disjoint and not integrated. Read More

  • Domaine la Roquette Chateaunef-du-Pape 2010


    Just over a year ago I put this in my wine fridge...although it may have lasted longer, the correct decision was to drink it now. Lilacs and other spring floral aromas add to the red berry fruits, mellow tannins, earth and acidity - which is juicy, but in line with smooth, velvety profile of the wine. Sumptuous wine - drink now - Paul. 91 points Read More

  • Clos du Mont-Olivet Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2008


    This 2008 (an average vintage) from the reputable Clos du Mont-Olivet has the usual confit scent of cherry, raspberry and a hint of latex. The wine is mature (2016) with a nice Southern Rhone entry of sage, raspberry, strawberry (for some people) and rubber (not in a bad way). Finish is warm, friendly and perfect for the lamb stews of southern... Read More
