Winemaker Paul-Vincent Avril typically works with a blend of three main grapes - 20% Mourvedre, 50% Grenache and 10% Syrah, with the balance being a mix of all the other permitted varieties (Clos des Papes is one of the few estates to use all permitted varieties for both red and white Chateauneuf). This is dense and complex Chateauneuf that will profit from 20 years plus in the cellar.

95/100 Decanter, Matt Walls
"Defined raspberry and redcurrant fruits, some woody spices in the background. Quite a rounded, fluid style, the acidity is really quite marked this year. Tannins are gentle, and it finishes on raspberry and redcurrant coulis. There's a silky touch on the palate. It's built around the acidity, the tannins are just gently sandy. Good sense of purity, quite a Burgundian vintage. Less Grenache in the blend this year as it was particularly hit by the frost." Drink 2025 - 2038
