Cuvée du Papet

First produced in 1989, the Cuvee du Papet comes from Mont Olivet's oldest Grenache vines, planted in 1901, blended with Syrah and Mourvedre. Only produced in exceptional vintages, this is one of the appellation's treasures. Best decanted or allowed to breathe for an hour or two, the 2012 Cuvee du Papet, produced from 75% Grenache, offers wonderfully enticing ripe black fruits, with notes of the garrigue, peppered herbs, mineral, and cedar. Lovely complexity and harmony, with a long, lingering finish.

Having been in the Sabon family since the early 20th century, Clos du Mont Olivet reflects the tradition of the region. Thierry’s aim is to produce a wine which captures all the warmth of the Mediterranean sun, whilst retaining an elegant balance. The viticultural practices are adapted according to the vintage and the wines matured in a combination of foudre, cask or vat, before bottling without fining or filtration. The wines of Mont Olivet develop beautifully and possess a delightful, Burgundian finesse.

Val de Dieu

A knockout bottle of wine, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Val de Dieu is made from 78% Grenache, 13% Syrah and 9% Mourvedre, is completely destemmed, and aged 18 months in new demi-muid, of which every trace is soaked up. Showing fabulous sweetness and purity on the nose, with black raspberry, black cherry liqueur, crushed flowers, white pepper and hints of liquorice, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, solid mid-palate depth and ultra-fine tannin. I think it will age beautifully, but given its polish and seamlessness, it's a superb drink even now. (Jeb Dunnock for eRobertParker.com #215 - Oct 2014 95/100)

The imposing Chateau de Vaudieu and its 200 acres are located to the north of the village, next to the legendary, ‘Rayas’. The site here was originally known as the Val de Dieu, (the valley of God), from where the name Vaudieu is taken. Farmed organically, the style here is very polished, refined and modern. All the grapes are de-stemmed and the wines are aged in a combination of barrel and demi-muids with a percentage of new oak. The Vaudieu style is seductive and seamless, but full of Provencal charm.

Signature, Barroche

A gorgeous base cuvee, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Signature checks in as a blend of 65% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault that's aged all in tank and larger foudre. Dishing out loads of black cherry, toasted spice, red licorice and underbrush, this medium to full-bodied beauty is seamless, silky and refined on the palate, with ultra-fine tannin. Already superb, it should nevertheless evolve gracefully on its balance and harmony.

Domaine la Barroche is one of the most impressive Châteauneuf producers to have emerged on the wine scene here in the previous two decades. Stylistically, Julien produces a more modern style of Chateauneuf, wines with wonderful clean, unctuous fruit and intense perfume.
