Quick Overview

The Estate

The domaine has been owned by the Geniest family for over a hundred years and apart from one small parcel of Syrah has all its vineyard holdings in the commune of Sorgues, the southern part of the appellation of Châteauneuf du Pape. The soil type here is a mixture of clay, gravel and sand with a scattering of galets roulets on the surface. This soil combination provides heat during the day but much cooler night time temperatures which help maintain higher levels of acidity in the grapes. At harvest time, the grapes are de-stemmed and then crushed before being pumped into traditional concrete tanks. Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation take place in tank and the wines are then aged for 18+ months in large, oak casks in order to reduce the primary fruit characteristics in favour of more spicy notes. The wine is a blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 15% Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Picpoul Noir. Prepare to be amazed.
