THE SYMPHONY OF THE 13 GRAPE VARIETIES

Immerse yourself in the world of grape varieties that contribute to the renowned Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. These carefully selected and blended grape varieties give the wines their unique character and aromatic complexity.

 

Picture yourself in the heart of sun-drenched vineyards, where the vines thrive on soils rich in clay and limestone, with a high proportion of rounded stones.

 

In our emblematic region, you will discover a palette of grape varieties that harmoniously blend together to create exceptional wines.

 

Among the red grape varieties, Grenache is the cornerstone of the appellation, often representing the majority of the blend. However, you will also encounter other grape varieties, each playing a distinct role and contributing different aromas.

 

There are also white grape varieties such as Roussanne, Clairette, and many more.

 

In our estate, we add our personal touch to the blend, giving birth to unique wines that reflect the exceptional terroir of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation.
