    A potentially prodigious CA'tes du RhA'ne, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone La Reserve boasts layers of dark, creamy, rich fruit, velvety tannins and a complex, spice-driven finish. It could mop the floor with many Chƒteauneufs.

  • The exceptional quality and stylistic excellence of this property's wines are due to the dedication, versatility, and forward thinking of both the late Jean-Denis Vacheron (who married the owner's daughter, Sylvie Pouzin) and the current winemaker, Bruno Gaspard. Jean-Denis and Sylvie had taken over from her father, Claude, in 1996. However, in 2002, Jean-Denis was killed in a traffic accident and Sylvie took the reins. Today, with the help of Gaspard as well as oenologist Philippe Cambie, she has catapulted the domaine into the elite echelon of the Southern Rhône. Despite holding only nine hectares of land, the domaine boasts venerable neighbors (Château Rayas and Château de Beaucastel), and its vineyards have elements of the best of both these estates. The rocky-sandy soils provide excellent drainage and impart minerality to these Châteauneuf-du-Papes.
