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.

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

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Tardieu-Laurent Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Vieilles Vignes 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Light and fresh top notes redolent of juicy pear, green apple and toast with hints of more tropical fruits. Gorgeous bright lemon, green apple and chunky mango notes in the mouth, this pops with acidity on entry and keeps up the zestiness through the finish, where touches of cream and butter mellow the finish, which is oaked and very much the ca...

  • Guigal Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty decent but not great CdP from Guigal. Nice dark berries on the nose along with a touch of tar. More dark fruit on the tongue - ripe plum, blackberry, black cherry, a touch of anise and medium acidity. The tannins are a bit tight and grainy, may need more air or more time in the bottle. Was hoping for a bit more complexity but that might c... Read More
