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.

  • Caves Saint-Pierre Châteauneuf-du-Pape le Fiacre du Pape 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Despite running it through an aerator and sitting in my glass for thirty minutes; this wine was tight. Good red fruit on the front end, nice acid balance and then some of the greenest tannins I've come across. By the second day the tannins had smoothed out a bit but not much. 87pts. Read More

  • Big Al - will they let you bring your own wine? Even if you pay $10 - $15 - $20 ... when you age something like Chateauneuf du Pape or Zinfandel or some Australian Grenache, the question is whether you actually get any improvement. In my experience, very seldom.That's true for a lot of other wines too, like some of the 1997 Napa Cabs. SOME of t... Read More

  • Gabriel Meffre Chateauneuf-du-Pape "Saint-theodoric" 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This 2010 is quite modern in style with a rather medium body, cherry-garrigue nose and good balance. Not particularly powerful, but has sufficient density to age through the remainder of the decade (2020). Enjoyable now. 89 points. Read More

    Wine review by zufrieden


  • Wondering if anyone can relate details of the C. du Pape marketed some years ago in a "warped" bottle with "sand" embedded all around the outside.. The story was that the winemaker had to bury the bottles of wine underground, since the Germans were advancing on France. After war's end, when they went to retrieve them, the weight and heat of the ... Read More
