This is a delightful family domaine with superb vineyards in the heart of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The estate is built around 65 acres of vines ranging in age from 40 to 95 years of age. These precious old vines produce a small crop of superbly concentrated and impeccably balanced fruit. Essentially a ‘baby’ Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this is a classic southern Rhône blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, and 15% of a lesser known grape called Counoise. There are only about 1,000 acres of Counoise planted in all of France, but producers like Autard value its peppery spice and buoyant acidity. The wine is aromatic and ripe, full and rich, and mellow and round. You’ll find a gorgeous scent of garrigue, the perfumed herbal scrub that dots the landscape, and a silky mouthfeel that is the hallmark of Grenache. To me, Côtes-du-Rhône wines in general represent amazing QPR (that’s quality-price-ratio), arguably the best in France. The reason lies in the strictly enforced Rhône wine laws, that insist on low yields, and top grapes grown in the best terroir.
