Les Hauts des Coteaux Châteauneuf-du-Pape / 2017 / 750mL

Tasting Note

Tasting Notes:

Cellier des Princes Les Hauts des Coteaux Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a wine created from 60 years old vines located in their best hillsides with low yields (less than 30hl per hectare) to obtain maximum concentration.

As the crop has been sorted out and picked at high maturity, the wine has a complex structure.

Aged in barrels, it enhances aromas of vanilla, tasted notes and liquorice.

The tannins are very smooth and silky and the long finish is spicy and elegant.

Terroir:

Top of the hillside vineyards and rounded pebbles mostly in Courthezon, and then in Bedarrides and Sorgues.

Grape Varieties:

90% Grenache
5% Mourvèdre
5% Syrah

Winemaking:

Careful pruning, de-budding, de-leafing and green harvest.

Hand-picked at peak maturity and fast transportation in small containers to the winery to avoid juice release and oxydation.

Destalking, 25 days fermentation and daily releases. Controlled fermentation at 28° to 30°C.

Ageing:

The wine is matured for 12 months in oak barrel (1/3 new), then several months in bottles.

Awards:

93 Pts Wine Enthusiast
Gold Avignon
Gold Feminalise
Gold Macon
