Professional Wine Reviews for Vignobles Mayard Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Clos Du Calvaire Red Rhone Blend 2013

Rated 91 by Decanter
Dark ruby. Deeply pitched black and blue fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of cracked pepper and licorice. Broad and fleshy but rather brooding on the palate, offering ripe blackcurrant and boysenberry flavors and a bit of warmth. Finishes broad and spicy, with building smokiness and youthfully chewy tannins. (Galloni)
Rated 90 by Robert Parker
Mayard’s 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Clos du Calvaire is solid, with perhaps outstanding potential. Giving up plenty of sweet strawberry, cherries, incense and mint, it has medium-bodied richness, excellent purity and the juicy acidity of the vintage. Made from 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Cinsault, aged all in concrete tank, it’s a charming, pretty 2013 to drink on release and over the following 5-7 years.

Winery Vignobles Mayard

Region: Rhone Valley

The southern French wine region of the Rhone Valley has been home to wine-makers for over two thousand years, with the first grapevines of the region being cultivated in around 600 BCE when the ancient Greeks arrived with their knowledge of viticulture and eagerness to produce more wine. Today, the region is famed around the world for the excellence of its produce, and has dozens of wineries making the most of the wide range of grape varietals which flourish there. In the northern sub-region, the continental climate and brisk winds coming off the Central Massif allow wineries to grow a smaller range of varietals – predominantly Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier, whereas the southern, more Mediterranean sub-region allows far more range. Here, dozens of varietals are grown for the production of white, red and rosé wines, all packed full of flavor and able to express the unique terroir they are grown on.

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.
