Chateauneuf Du Pape - Rhone Valley - France

Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Du Pere Caboche Chateauneuf Du Pape 2017

Rated 90 by Jeb Dunnuck
A big wine by this estate's standards (I always find these wines to be more elegant), the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape is based on 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah, and 5% Mourvèdre brought up in a mix of concrete, stainless steel, and foudre. Deep ruby/plum-colored, with powerful notes of black cherries, currants, smoked earth, chocolate, and garrigue, it hits the palate with medium to full body, loads of ripe fruit, chewy tannins, and a good finish. It's a touch rough around the edges, but it has loads of character.
The colour is deep red with bluish highlights. The nose is very expressive with ripe red fruit flavors and hints of soft spices. The mouth is expressive and well-rounded with a dominating taste of jammy fruits and liquorice, embellished with notes of Cayenne pepper. The tannins are silky and well-coated. The finish is long and elegant.

Winery Domaine Du Pere Caboche

Region: Rhone Valley

There are few wine regions in the world with a history as long and illustrious as that of the Rhone Valley in France. For over two thousand years, wines have been produced in this region, benefited by the excellent, mineral-rich soils of the region, and the varied climate which allows a wide range of grape varietals to grow. The Rhone Valley is now split into two quite separate regions, with the north part being characterized by its cooler, continental climate and the limited number of grape varietals grown, and the southern sub-region being perfect for growing a wide range of grapes, and producing an exciting number of different wine styles. The Rhone Valley is associated with elegant, flavorful wines, and certain grape varietals such as Viognier and Syrah, which are adept at expressing the finer features of their terroir.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
