Our wines are vinified with a great number of grape varieties, up to thirteen for the Chateauneuf du Pape. The main grapes used are the Grenache, the Syrah or the Mourvedre together with a whole set of ancient varieties. Our wines always reflect their origin, deepness of the pebbles for strength, dryness and hot sandy soils for power and spices, chalky sandstones for structure, clayey, siliceous hillocks for richness and roundness.

Wine SpectatorVery solid, with a core of warm plum, blackberry and black cherry compote notes carried by a singed alder spine through the grippy finish. Shows more range as it stretches out in the glass, with spice, tobacco and warm stone details, though the structure remains a bit rustic in the end. Best from 2018 through 2023. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 8,400 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape is medium-bodied and moderately concentrated, with plenty of damp earth, dark fruits and leafy herbs. It's mostly Grenache and was brought up in equal parts concrete and stainless steel.
