Details

The color is crimson with purple highlights. The nose is very expressive with intense notes of fresh fruit (blackberry and raspberry), blackcurrant bud and soft spices (grey pepper). There is a beautiful volume with attractive notes of black fruit jelly. The tannins are fine and well-coated. The finish is full and velvety with light flavors of liquorice.-Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

The history of the domain goes back to at least 1652, when it was owned by the Chambellan family. This family also owned the property in 1777 when a daughter from the place married Louis Boisson and in this way connected the Boisson family with the property. The Boissons also worked as blacksmiths in the town and from this got the nickname "Caboche" (derives from the old Provencal word for horseshoe nails). This name was consequently chosen for the property (Domaine Pere Caboche).Domaine du Père Caboche covers 63 hectares of Chateauneuf du Pape (17 ha.), Cotes du Rhone Villages (15 ha.), Cotes du Rhone and IGP de Vaucluse.
