The red wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, intensely purple in their youth and evolving into a ruby hue as they mature, are remarkably complex, offering a diverse aromatic palette ranging from ripe fruits to spices. Best enjoyed from around two years, they gain in structure and depth over time, pairing well with red meats and lamb as well as spicy Asian dishes. Their ability to age over several decades is a major asset.

The white Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines, boasting a beautiful golden robe, offer aromas of white fruits and flowers that evolve into notes of honey and toasted bread over time. They are perfect to accompany fish, shellfish, white meats, foie gras, and even winter truffles in their youth. These white wines, often overlooked for their aging potential, develop hazelnut and toasted bread aromas, becoming superb companions for dishes such as roasted chickens, sautéed porcini mushrooms, as well as cheeses like Comté, Beaufort, or Roquefort over the years.
