Cuvee Papale, Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge
Blended by Alex Favier, one of Chateauneuf-du-Pape's best producers, this is an archetypal and rustic expression with spiced black fruit aromas and a velvety, warm palate.
The vines grow in free-draining clay and sand soils, strewn with the famous galets roulés (large, round pebbles covering the soil). These act like night storage heaters, absorbing heat during the day and releasing it at night, creating a warm microclimate around vines and ripening the grapes very quickly. Selected parcels of Grenache Noir and Syrah have been chosen for this blend, then fermented in a combination of cement vats and old foudres which helped to extract colour and tannin.
