Châteauneuf-du-Pape, a historical name, evocative of a village, a precious beverage and a prestigious appellation.

At the beginning of the 14th century, vines already represented 45% of the cultivated area, and the popes settled in Castro Novo. 500 years later, the village with its rolled pebbles, on the edge of the Rhône, was renamed Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

From the Tulles of Villefranche to the bold and meticulous farmers of the village, from the Commandant

From Ducos to Baron Pierre Leroy de Boiseaumarie, extraordinary people have worked in turn to serve this blessed vineyard until the creation of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape Appellation d'origine contrôlée in 1933.

Today's winegrowers are continuing the work of their predecessors and are raising the quality and reputation.

Plateau de la Crau – « Les Combes »

A plot of land on the Crau plateau, renowned for its rolled pebbles, one of the trademarks of the Domaine's terroir.

Planted by Edmond Tacussel at the beginning of the 20th century and bordered by a wood in its southern and western parts, this parcel with century-old vines produces a structured and deep wine.

The yield is very low and the quality exceptional.

Located on the Crau plateau, made up of a wide variety of terroirs, "Les Garrigues" is a historic parcel, dating back over a century. It produces the best Cinsaults and Mourvèdres of the Clos Saint- Jean, as well as some very fine Grenaches.

The result is wines that are touching, with their substance, structure, finesse and aromas.

Plateau de la Crau – « Pied Redon »

Some of the most beautiful Syrahs of the Clos Saint-Jean grow on the "Pied Redon" plot. A very old part and a more recent one cohabit on this soil made of rolled pebbles, often of great size, composed of quartzites. This is a testimony to the power of the Rhône's arms to transport them from the heart of the Alps to Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

It is also on this terroir that the Bourboulenc s are found, this white grape variety which likes dryness and which is used in the blending of gastronomic wines.
