Winemaker's Notes:

Clos des Papes is one of the few estates to use all permitted varieties for both red and white Chateauneuf. They are well‐known for producing one of the most authentic and long‐lived examples of the appellation having started estate bottling in 1896.

The 2008 should drink nicely for 10-15 years. Bright ruby. A heady bouquet displays fresh red berries, sandalwood, dried flow...
