Clos des Papes is one of the great names of Châteauneuf-du-Pape with the family living in the village for centuries, currently run by Paul-Vincent Avril who is also the winemaker.

Producing just one red and one white wine, no special cures, no one offs, just two outstanding wines that both incorporate all the permitted varieties of the they appeleation.

The vintage is heavily weighted toward Mourvèdre, and it offers a mammoth bouquet of black cherries, graphite, cured meats, Asian spices, and assorted garrigue.

Deep, full-bodied, and concentrated, it stays straight and focused on the palate, with a stacked mid-palate, ripe, silky tannins, and fabulous length.
