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.

  • Try AMON-Ra from Oz, too. Greg's Quilceda Creek and Amarone seconded. 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape also qualifies.Do we want to talk about late-harvest Zins?  ;-)Another approach is to take this list and target specific regions and (older) vintages that might fall under that price limit. If not these vineyards, maybe some others in close proximity t... Read More

  • 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
