Domaine du Pere Caboche Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 2019
- Grenache, Syrah
The colour is bright and deep ruby red with bluish highlights. The nose is intense with full aromas of ripe red fruits, mineral (schist) and smoky hints on soft spices. This full-bodied wine has a nice balance between sweetness and a fine tannic structure. The fruity and peppery flavours dominate on licorice and Espelette pepper finish. This Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine is really complex, full of freshness and elegance with a long finish. - Winemaker's Notes
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.
