The Story

Since 1993, 80 to 90% of the red grapes are destemmed. fermentation is in a mixture of cement and stainless steel tanks. The straight Côtes du Rhône macerates 12-15 days on the skins, before 6-9 months ageing in foudres. The Côtes du Rhône Villages has 15-18 days, with manual pigeage each day. It is aged 50% in barriques, 50% in foudre. 'Les Garrigues' gets a full 18 day maceration, manual pigeage twice a day, followed by ageing in both foudres and barriques. The red Châteauneuf has a 20 day cuvaison in cement tanks, 12 months ageing in barrel and large oak cask, then 6 more months in vat before a very light filtration and bottling. 'Chaupin' macerates 21-23 days on the skins, with regular pigeage, before 18 months in large and small oak casks. The Vieilles Vignes has 23-25 days of cuvaison, oak-ageing featuring a limited percentage of new oak, and further time in vat before a gentle clarification and bottling.

Written Notes

I was blown away by the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Chaupin, a 100% Grenache release that comes almost exclusively from the Chaupin lieu-dit in the northern part of the appellation. It's never as inky-hued or powerful as the Vieilles Vignes but always screams Grenache with its sexy, ripe, seamless, and remarkably elegant style. The 2020 offers a translucent ruby/purple hue as well as incredible aromatics of blackberries, black raspberries, peppery garrigue, herbes de Provence, and flowers, and it opens up nicely with time in the glass. Full-bodied and concentrated on the palate, it has silky tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish. I finished my note with "a Grenache lover's dream." This is up with the finest vintages produced and will evolve for 15+ years. Best after 2022
