Privilège de Maucoil Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2015

56.00

Description

From this family domaine’s oldest vines (70 years on average), this is a rich and powerful Châteauneuf du Pape comprising all 13 permitted grape varieties. Harvesting is carried out by hand, with individual plots vinified together to form a series of traditional field blends, which are then put into large or small, new or used oak barrels depending on the plots they hail from. Final blending takes place after 18 months with the wine going into bottle for a further two years prior to release.

This decadent wine displays a strong ruby red hue with a powerful and extremely complex nose of fine spices, fruit, black olives and garrigue scrubland. Rich, smooth and concentrated on the palate, with nice polished tannins and exceptional length packed with spice and black fruit.

Should be decanted at least one hour before serving and can be laid down for up to 15 years from vintage.

Producer: Château Maucoil

Château Maucoil has a long history stretching back to Roman times when the property was used as an army fortress for Caesar's legions, and winegrowing is documented back to the construction of the surviving castle built in 1624.
Acquired by the Lavau family in 2013, the 45 hectares of vines in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation have been tended organically since 2011, and in 2014 the entire estate gained biodynamic certification. A broad variety of grapes are grown across the vineyards, representing the wide range of traditional grapes for both red and white Châteauneuf du Pape and premium Côtes-du-Rhône.
