DOMAINE CLEF DE SAINT THOMAS, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge PIERRE TROUPEL 2018

DOMAINE CLEF DE SAINT THOMAS, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge PIERRE TROUPEL 2018

Terroir & Vineyards

The family estate consists of 11 hectares (27 acres) in the finest terroirs of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

An imposing ground with huge pebbles
The estate’s terroirs are located on a stony plateau and are sandy or chalky, depending on the plot.
The soils of Châteauneuf-du-Pape are covered with large pebbles that are heated by the sun and release steady gentle warmth through the day. This interaction promote grape maturity and concentration.
The Domaine has a mosaic of traditional grape varieties, which impart aromatic complexity, balance and power to the wines.

For the reds: chiefly Grenache Noir, supplemented by Syrah and Mourvèdre.
For the whites: Roussanne, Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache Blanc.

All our grapes are hand picked

Harvesting takes place in mid-September. The grapes are loaded in crates, and vinified at our winery in the village.

This wine is a tribute to the grandfather of the owner: Sophie Kessler-Matière. Pierre Troupel had bright blue eyes and was making French blue Cheese “Bleu d’Auvergne”.

TASTING NOTES

Garnet red, with a nose of wild red fruit (blackberries, raspberries, black cherries) which opens onto spices when aerated. On the palate: fleshy, mature, rounded. From nose to palate, the aromas are exactly the same, leading through to a fresh and liquorice-laced finish.
Bonus point: perfect with grilled meats.
