Châteauneuf-du-Pape

La Paillousse

Terroir

This wine is produced from an exceptional terroir of sand and clay, covered with large flat pebbles, where the vines benefit et night from the heat that these have soaked up during the day.

Winemaking

Grenache and Syrah are hand picked. The wine is made following the methods traditionally used for this famous appellation and is aged for 12 months in oak foudres and barrels.

Tasting notes

With a deep purple colour, it has delicate red fruit and fig aromas on the nose. On the palate enjoy its weight, and the powerful yet smooth black fruit and liquorice flavours with notes of mint and “garrigue” or wild herbs.
