Mixed Case: Châteauneuf-du-Pape Sampler (12)

$525

Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the perfect wine for cooler weather. Made famous by French popes in the 14th century, and then again by Robert Parker in the 1980s, the area is rich with winemaking history. Today the appellation, which covers only about 12 square miles, produces some of the most sought after wine in the world.

Here are four Chateauneuf-du-Papes from two winemakers over two vintages. They all have between two and six years of bottle age, and show the impressive variety of terroir available from the appellation. With fall here and winter on its way, this is the perfect mixed case to keep you warm.

Each CDP sampler comes with a detailed map of the appellation, see photo below. (While supplies last.)

Description

MESTRE Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2012
MESTRE Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2016
Christophe Mestre is an up and coming young winemaker from an old Châteauneuf family. His wines are traditional, smooth and easy to enjoy young. Vinous awarded his 2012 91 points, calling it “silky” and “seamless,” and noting its “zesty mineral flourish.” The 2016 is richer and fuller but still beautifully well balanced.
