Available for delivery now, this is a generous, definitive Châteauneuf-du-Pape that perfectly sums up this legendary French appellation. It comes through with rich fruity aromas of blackcurrant, morello cherry and strawberry and some serious silkiness on the palate. Lovers of high-end red wines will love the ripe, juicy tannins and uniquely spicy notes of cinnamon and vanilla that round it out.
If you’ve heard of wines from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, there’s a reason. Located in the southern Rhône valley, the area’s wines are known for being big, bold and complex. Even by French standards these are wines to be seriously appreciated, with strong flavors and unique, funky aromas.
The Domaine de Pignan vineyards in Châteauneuf-de-pape
The Domaine de Pignan winery has humble beginnings that go all the way back to 1855, when Antoine and Sophie Pécoul bought five hectares of vineyards sat right by the Pope’s old castle in Châteauneuf. Predating the creation of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC (which wasn’t officially desigated until 1933), they made wines simply for their own family needs.
