Professional Wine Reviews for Vignobles Mayard Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Clos Du Calvaire 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.

Additional Information on Vignobles Mayard Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Clos Du Calvaire 2013

Winery: Vignobles Mayard

Region: Rhone Valley

The Rhone Valley of southern France is a particularly fascinating wine region, with a history that stretches back to at least six hundred BCE, when the ancient Greeks first began cultivating vines there. The region itself is split into two distinct sub-regions, with the northern sub-region being famed for its production of exceptional Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier wines, packed full of interesting character and expressing the terroir found there. The southern sub-region is home to an enormous variety of grapes, and produces red, white and rosé wines, and some of the world's most famous and adored blended wines. The continental climate of the region is ideal for growing grapes, and the winds which blow from the Central Massif help temper the heat in the vineyards, leading to very ripe fruits holding plenty of flavor.

Country: France

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
