Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine la Crau des Papes

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine la Crau des Papes bottle

The origins of the estate date back to the 17th century vineyards which belonged to Puget family. In the mid 19th century, however, the vines were destroyed by Phylloxera replaced by plowland. It is only in an act of succession of 1900 that land planted with vines in the area of "La Crau" were noticed. Some of these vines are still in the vineyard!

The Domaine vineyards are located in the area of ‘‘La Crau’’ which is notable for pebble soil and ranks as one of the best and most historic terroirs of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation.

The full-bodied 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Domaine la Crau des Papes is a fine effort from this widely distributed négociant. Garrigue, tea and floral notes accent raspberry and cherry fruit in this silky-textured wine, which remains lively and fresh through the long finish.
  • Winemaking

    Traditional winemaking with long maceration time of up to 3 weeks to concentrate the color and aromas.

  • Nose

    Complex aromas of stewed black fruits with spice and balsamic notes.

  • Palate

    Expressive, round and generous palate with smooth tannins. Very supple start and a long finish accented with notes of spice.
