Known as some of the very finest winemakers in the southern Rhône, their estate is composed of several plots of vines scattered throughout the area which allow them to spread the harvest over a longer period of time and get the best from each sites.
Deep and intense Châteauneuf du Pape with spicy and cherry aromas. Full bodied with fine tannins, a good acidity and great length.
One of the stars of the vintage and coming from absurdly low yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape is a full-bodied, seamless effort that exhibits copious kirsch, ground pepper, dried flowers and underbrush as well as incredibly fine tannin, great mid-palate concentration and ample length on the finish. Relatively forward by this estate's standards, it will be approachable at an earlier age than normal. Nevertheless, it will have 20+ years of evolution and is an awesome effort in the vintage.
