2013 Chapelle Saint-Theodoric "La Guigasse" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $60)

SKU #1249172

About the producer: "Chapelle St. Theodoric is not a domain in the usual sense of the word. The grapes for the wine come from 3 ha of AOP Chateauneuf du Pape since 2009 belonging to the american wine importer Peter Weygandt. The cultivation of the vines and the winemaking is done by the team at Domaine de Christia. The 3 ha are situated at two lieux-dits Guigasse and Pignan both areas where the soil is sandy and nearly without stones. All parcels contain only Grenache Noir with an average age of 50 years - some vines are up to one hundred years old. The first vintage was 2009. The vineyards are cultivated by biodynamic principles. In the first vintages since 2009 the yield has only been around 14 hl/ha."

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
