The color is deep ruby red ruby with a dark purple hue. The classy nose of the wine is typical from the best terroirs of Grenache on rolled-pebbles where our old vines are planted. It offers intense aromas of ripe fruit underlined with soft spices and a hint of graphite. This is a full-bodied wine with good density and volume. It has a rounded palate and a tight texture with ripe fruit flavors, fine spiciness enhanced by a nice minerality and slightly saline. Tannins are dense but extremely smooth. Long length on the finish. The wine shows an outstanding balance between concentration, depth and elegance.

The 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes Elisabeth Chambellan is a smaller production cuvée based on 88% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre, coming from the La Crau and Font du Pape lieux-dits. Spring flowers, peppery herbs, candied orange, and assorted red and blue fruits emerge from this medium to full-bodied, spicy, complex, elegant red that displays wonderful Grenache typicity. It should come together nicely once bottled and have 15 years of prime drinking.
