DOMAINE DU GALET DES PAPES, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge Vieilles Vignes 2016

DOMAINE DU GALET DES PAPES, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge Vieilles Vignes 2016

Terroir

Clayey, chalky with big pebble stones, sandy for some plots

 

Grape Varieties

60% Grenache - 30 % Mourvèdre - 10% Syrah

 

Average Age of the Vines

80 years, some plots are even a hundred years old !

 

Grape-Picking

Manual, with a selection in the vineyard on the stainless grape bin. The harvest started on the 20th of September 2016. Right from seeing the very first free run wines, we noticed beautifully intense and deep colors.

 

Wine-Making

Traditional during 15 days - Using thermoregulation for a good control of the temperatures

 

Ageing

8 to 12 months in big oak barrels

 

Wine-tasting notes

To the eye, a beautifully intense and deep colour. The Grenache exhales notes of raspberry, black fruits and a lot of spices. In the mouth, Vieilles Vignes 2016 gives a rich and full tasting, with a velvety and subtle delicacy and a great freshness.
