Domaine du Pere Caboche - Elisabeth Chambellan - Chateneuf du Pape

About This Item

Overview: A long time before all this, our vineyard belonged to the Chambellan family. In 1777, my ancestor, Jean-Louis Boisson, married Elisabeth Chambellan and so became vine-grower in Châteauneuf du Pape. Since then, we have had parcels that have remained in the family, without there being any exchange or sale. The vines which are still there now are over 100 years old and produce an outstanding wine. The oldest parcel was planted in 1906. As a tribute and thanks to Elisabeth, we are today vine-growers from father to son and daughter.

Tasting Notes: The color is deep ruby red with bluish highlights. The complex and classy nose of this wine is typical from the best terroirs of Grenache on rolled-pebbles where our old vines are planted. This is a full bodied and elegant wine with intense aromas of candied red fruits combined with a hint of soft liquorice on the nose, fresh chily pepper and roasted notes. It is well-balanced on the palate with sweet notes and a nice minerality. It offers preserve fruits flavours with mineral and spicy notes. The tannins are silky. The finish is long and smooth. This is a great wine with character. 

Pairing: Rigatoni with lamb, tomato, and rosemary ragu
