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.

  • RBA, don't ask me or OT whether you should open a Malbec.  But as for ... a 2009 Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape, part of a stash of 2009s I bought at hefty discounts.  (2010 for the long term, 2007 is overrated, 2009 got discounted when the hype about 2010s, which is not inaccurate, started, and 2006 if you can find them--I actually ...

  • Domaine du Pere Caboche Chateauneuf du Pape 2012


    Fresh and slightly creamy on the nose with lovely aromas of blueberry and raspberry candy framed by hints of hay, paprika and ink along with a light stewed tomato note. Soft and easy on the palate, this shows off that slight stewy tomato note early on the palate but the savory aspects, along with dried floral tones and herbal notes, help to fram... Read More

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


    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
