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.

  • Well, the example that comes most quickly to mind is VJB Cellars. Since I moved here, the prices of their wines have gone up steadily (roughly doubling) and I wonder if the quality of the wine has improved as much over the last ten years. During the same period, the company has spent how many millions building their hewn-stone tasting room and e... Read More

  • Les Clefs d'Or Chateauneuf du Pape 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This little gem from the 2009 vintage is perfect for drinking now: the nose evokes sweet cherry on a bed of wild herbs and a hint of cake spice, and the entry is cherry with a touch of cola and allspice. Finish is soft and slightly off-dry... perfect balance with mild tannin. 89. Read More
