Half day wine tour in Chateauneuf du Pape 24/02/2015

Half day wine tour in Chateauneuf du Pape with Scott from Los Angeles.

We first had a ride through the vineyard to enjoy the scenery and also have an explanation about the climat, the diversity of the soil, the grapes, everything which makes Chateauneuf du Pape such a special place for making wine.




After a quick stop at the castle on the top of the hill, we went to a first winery. A familal estate usually not open to the public. Scott learned about how we usually make the wine in Chateauneuf du Pape and how we age it.

Wa also had a wine tasting with 4 different wine including a barrel tasting.

We finally went to the second biggest winery of Chateauneuf du Pape to see the oldest cellar from the area (from the 16th) before a wine tasting (including a old vintage from 1992)

To finish the half day we had a chocolate and wine pairing, not so easy to paire but very enjoyable.
