Domaine Pere Caboche Cotes du Rhone 2017

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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 frame the modest and slightly muddied strawberry flavors here. The berry fruit sticks around on the moderately long finish and this shows some fine grained tannins that lurk beneath the fruit. Easy drinking and quite typical. 86pts

Domaine du Père Caboche:
For generations my family has been both wine growers and blacksmiths. My father Théophile Boisson was orphaned when he was only three years old, hence he was unable to train to as a blacksmith. Fortunately his mother helped foster a keen interest in grapes and wine, that led to him becoming a wine maker. The family nickname of “Caboche” derives from the old Provencal word for horseshoe nails, by which our estate is still known.

Tasted it last week at the winery, bought a few bottles to cellar. Prefer the vielle vignes, but this wine opened beautifully through dinner, with deep blackberry and pepper

Pretty good. Deep red, fruity and smooth at the beginning with a bit of a bite at the back.

Nose of strawberries and bright cherries. A lot of fruit - red cherries, cassis. Pleasantly tannic, could have a longer finish. Nice for drinking alone or with food. I prefer it a bit colder. This bottle contains 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 7% Mouvèdre and 8% the other 10 out of the 13 grape varieties that are used in Southern Rhone vinos. RP 90

I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/39312.Chateauneuf-du-Pape was the very first AOC created when that system was set up in 1932.It is located in the Avignon/Orange area of the southern Rhone valley where it is the most prestigious appellation.Chateauneuf-du-Pape roughly translates as 'the Pope's new palace' because in the 14th century Pope John 22nd built himself a new home [now derelict but a tourist attraction] and also took a great interest in the viticulture of the region although wine had been made here since before the Romans.Even today the papal coat of arms is engraved on every bottle.Domaine Pere Caboche [www.domaineperecaboche.com] is owned and run by the Boisson family who have been involved in wine-making since the 18th century and are well known in the area.Jean-Pierre was at one time the Mayor of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.The wine consists of 60%grenache,25%syrah10%mourverde and the rest made up of small amounts of every grape variety allowed in the AOC.I started my bottle last night with my roast chicken and I enjoyed it.There is plenty of a blackcurrant and plum style fruit there and the tannins,although soft and unobtrusive give it a structured and reserved feel.The well known wine critic,Robert Parker likes this wine.I thought it superb so I gave it top marks



<p>This Red Rhone blend consists in 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 7% Mourv&egrave;dre and 8% Cinsault, Counoise, Muscardin, Vaccar&egrave;se and Terret Noir. This wine is not intended for long-term aging, but should be enjoyed within 5-8 years of bottling.</p>
