Châteauneuf-du-Pape literally translates to “The Pope’s new castle” and, indeed, the history of this appellation is firmly entwined with papal history. A deep ruby color with purple highlights. A generous and complex nose revealing aromas of black cherry, «garrigue» and cinnamon. On the palate, it is full-bodied, well-balanced, with a persistent finish dominated by round tannins and aromas of crystallized cherry and cinnamon. Elegant wine with a rich spicy finish. Aging in local oak barrels.
