  • Vineyard Profile

    • Châteauneuf-du-Pape is characterized by the diversity of its soils, with a mosaic of plots where different varieties grow together on limestone rock, round pebbles on a clay substrate with varying amounts of iron, and fine sedimentary sand.

  • Vintage Report

    • Following a mild, wet winter that replenished groundwater reserves, the season was notable for its early harvest. On March 25th, frost damage limited the vegetative cycle. The equally mild and damp spring, prompted regular applications of herbal infusions and essential oils that effectively protected the crop. Flowering started in the second week of May which confirmed the early nature of the vintage. The plentiful water resources accumulated over winter and the occasional summer showers ensured a progressive and optimum ripening of the grapes. The harvest was notably splendid and picking lasted from August 25th to the final days of September.

  • Vinification

    • The grapes are hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard. Co-fermentation, long vatting for soft extractions. Matured for 12 months in conical vats, foudres and barrels.

  • Technical Information

    • Varietal Composition: Selected plots, of mainly old vines of the 13 varieties of the appellation planted together, predominantly Grenache.
