Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93(+?)

($65; made from a selection of old-vines grenache, with about 10% of syrah added) Good full ruby-red. Fruit-driven aromas of black raspberry, cassis and bitter chocolate, with a hint of exotic fruits. Like a berry cocktail in the mouth, with penetrating, dense, sharply focused flavors of red berries, licorice and dark chocolate. A wonderfully lush and sweet wine with a compelling sappy quality and lovely aromatic character. But still a bit tight in the middle; the substantial, firm tannins call for four or five years of additional bottle aging.

Everything I love about CDP. Core of strawberry and raspberry fruit with flavors of creme de cassis and rose petals. Framed by notes of white pepper and spices. Finely grained tannins. Well-balanced with a long flavorful finish. Delicous.

About This Producer


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 winemaker Gaspard and oenologist Philippe Cambie, she has catapulted the domaine into the elite of the southern Rhone. Despite holding only 9 hectares of land, the domaine boasts venerable neighbors (Chateau Rayas and Chateau 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 Chateauneuf-du-Papes.

Wine Varietal: Rhone Blend


"Rhone blends" are typically red wines comprised of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre in varying proportions. However, the red blends may also include any of the traditional varieties grown in the Rhone Valley such as the 14 allowed in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation. There are also Rhone blend roses which use the same varieties as their red counterparts. White Rhone blends are typically some combination of Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Grenache blanc, and lesser varieties.
