Teaching the "leading schools"
Each year, the federation of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine-producers goes to different “Oenologic clubs” of universities and business/engineering schools. December 10th, we were in Paris at the Ecole Spéciale des Travaux publics to present the AOC through wine tasting of 7 different wines : the whites of Domaine de Nalys, and the young reds of Château La Gardine, Domaine de la Mordorée, Domaine Saint-Préfert. Clos du Mont-Olivet 2004 came to close the tasting, showing the long lasting potential of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The students discovered the versatility of Grenache on different soils, as well as the importance of low yield and sorting for producing wines of quality.
Thank you to the students for their interest. We wish they could become the future Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine-lovers!
