DOMAINE FONT DE MICHELLE CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE

Posted on

$75.00

Vivid ruby. Ripe red and blue fruits on the pungent nose, complicated by nuances of candied licorice, lavender and smoky Indian spices. Smooth and fleshy on entry, then tighter in the midpalate, offering appealingly sweet, concentrated boysenberry and black raspberry flavors and a touch of vanilla. Expands very nicely on the finish, which hangs on with strong tenacity and sneaky tannins.

Description

To distance himself from the bustle of wars that raged in Italy at the time Pope Clement V took residence at Avignon, France in 1304. His successor, John XXII, restored and enlarged the old Episcopal residence of Ch√Ęteauneuf. It was he who ordered the first grapevines to be planted in the year 1318.

Initially intended as a confidential production, wine growing gained predominance as the years went by. The true renown of Ch√Ęteauneuf du Pape wines date from the 13th century
