Font de Joubert Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Description

This 99% Grenache cuvée displays charming and complex aromas of ripe cherries and raspberries. This stunning CNdP has a delicious texture despite being vinified and aged in concrete; the tannins are soft, giving it a lush, creamy mouthfeel and a delicate finish that still retains a sense of power. Drink now or cellar for many more years.

Extra Notes

The Charrier family owns a nice vineyard in Courthezon. They sold their grapes to the cooperative for a long time, then Caroline and her father built a cellar and began to vini-fy in the early 2000. Frédéric, Caroline’s brother is in charge of the vineyard.Five plots, mainly on sandy soils, one of the 3.5 ha in the mythical Rayas, the other in la Guigasse, le Pointu, Chapelle SaintGeorges and la Crau-est.
