2015 Chateauneuf-du-pape Rouge Croix De Bois M Chapoutier - (Case - 6/75cl)
5ha, 100% Grenache This distinctive terroir is located in the town of Bédarrides, and is characterised by large rolled quartzite pebbles and sandy red clay. This forces the roots to grow deep in the soil. The pebbles protect the topsoil from the drying mistral wind, the sun, and compacting. The Croix de Bois terroir is nevertheless quite distinct from Barbe Rac. At about half the age of Barbe Rac vines, and at a higher altitude, its spicy nose and deep red-fruit flavours make a distinctive statement of dense Grenache intensity. The wines from this land have strong structure and colour. It offers multiple aromas: Very ripe red fruit, plum and a few spicy scents with full-flavoured, warm tannins. This is a wine with great ageing potential, which perfectly embodies the character of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
