Châteauneuf-du-Pape Mixed Case
Châteauneuf-du-Pape Mixed Case
This Châteauneuf-du-Pape mixed case comes all the silky opulence and enticing aromas and flavours of wild herb, blackberry, black cherry, strawberry and peppery spice for which the wines southern Rhônes most prestigious appellation are eternally sought. Flavours that abound in the cuvées of Domaine de Pignan, Château Fargueirol and Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe and ones we now invite you to enjoy.
And given the 2018 vintage will soon open with the warmer, more intense 2019 vintage not far behind, now is the time for anyone with a penchant for world-class grenache/syrah-based blends to add these Châteauneuf heavy-weights to the cellar.
2018 Domaine de Pignan, Châteauneuf-du-Pape
A deep and delicious blend of 64% Grenache, 12% Syrah, 12% Mourvedre, 6% Cinsault (the remaining percentage in lesser varietals) and a generous wine with gorgeous black fruit, cinnamon, overtones of toasted nuts and vanilla beans. Silkiness, power, fullness of flavour and tannin combine.
"Bright ruby-red. Ripe red fruits and pungent flowers on the fragrant, spice-accented nose. Juicy and animated on the palate, offering appealingly sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that deepen and slowly firm up through the back half. The spice and floral notes repeat on a long, gently tannic finish that leaves hints of licorice and cola behind."

2020 Château Fargueirol, 'Vieux Chemin', Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Château Fargueirol and the Revoltier family boast one of Rhones oldest legacies in wine production dating back almost eight centuries. Today, their 30-hectare estate averages a respectable 50-year average vine age, yielding fruit of remarkable complexity and depth of flavour. A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, makes up the Vieux Chemin, with each vinified separately with 6-9 months maturation in large oak barrels.
"Glistening ruby. Raspberry, lavender and a subtle garrigue note on the aromatic nose. Sappy and nicely concentrated, offering spice-tinged red fruit and floral pastille flavors that expand with air. Shows good heft but comes off lively, with harmonious tannins and clinging red fruit character."

2019 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe, Télégramme, Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Télégramme is the second wine of one of Châteauneuf-du-Papes all-time legends; a producer that evokes the concept of terroir in its purest form. Dramatic climate, rugged, sun-drenched terrain, higher altitude and sheer, classic typicity of grenache-based expression. All exquisitely harnessed by the experience and expertise of famille Brunier.
"Deep violet. Ripe, spice-accented dark berry and cherry preserve scents show strong garrigue and floral accents. Pliant in texture and broad in the mouth, offering sappy boysenberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors and a peppery topnote. Finishes long and gently chewy, with the floral and spice notes repeating."
