Chateauneuf Du Pape - Rhone Valley - France

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

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

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
