Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Around

Châteauneuf is the best-known name in the Rhône Valley, capable of producing wines of real majesty. The 2015s are gloriously ripe and full-flavoured.

Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Terre d'Argile, Domaine de la Janasse 2015

Janasse is an exciting estate making great wines across the board. We tasted all of the elements of this wine in October: grenache, syrah, carignan and mourvèdre from vines close to the Châteauneuf border, whose style this wine certainly resembles. Big, bold and full-bodied, this is a proper winter warmer. 2018–2025.

RH45791

Côtes-du-Rhône, Coudoulet de Beaucastel 2015

This historic vineyard falls outside the official Châteauneuf boundary, but the style is unmistakably Châteauneuf, even unmistakably Beaucastel, with its large proportion of the mourvèdre grape. Sweet, spicy and immensely characterful. 2018–2026. Magnums available.

RH45791 Bottles6 Price£70.00 Type
RH45821

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tradition, Domaine la Boutinière 2015

Elegant yet powerful Châteauneuf offering a big basketful of dried-fruit, raisin, fig and date flavours. 2019–2027.

RH45821 Bottles6 Price£75.00 Type
RH45831

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Château Mont-Redon 2015

The famous Mont-Redon is a family affair across two generations. Behind a heavy exterior with old furniture and countless hunting trophies, there is a state-of-the-art cellar, controlled at the touch of an iPad. Always polished and poised, the wines keep well, gathering in intensity with age. The 2015 is a wine of restrained elegance and great length. 2019–2028. Magnums available.

RH45831 Bottles6 Price£80.00 Type
RH45801

Côtes-du-Rhône, Réserve Clos du Caillou 2015

Châteauneuf-du-Pape in all but name! A staggeringly powerful wine loaded with liquorice and plummy spice. 2021–2032.

RH45801 Bottles6 Price£85.00 Type
RH45861

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Bosquet des Papes 2015

Traditional, generous and full-bodied Châteauneuf. There’s a lot of old-vine grenache in this dark, spicy and long-flavoured blend, adding extra weight and concentration. 2020–2029.

RH45861 Bottles6 Price£105.00 Type
RH45881

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Crau de Ma Mère, Mayard 2015

Françoise and Béatrice Mayard make the excellent Society’s Exhibition Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This is on the same generous, savoury and bright lines, but altogether more ambitious and structured. Utterly splendid in 2015. 2020–2030.

RH45881 Bottles6 Price£108.00 Type
RH45841

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine Font de Michelle 2015

Ripe-tasting, full-flavoured Châteauneuf made from 65% grenache, 15% syrah, 10% mourvèdre and the rest of everything else. Stylish wine, offering flavours of fruit pulp, fig and plum. 2020–2030. Magnums available.

RH45841 Bottles6 Price£118.00 Type

RH45851 Bottles6 Price£120.00 Type
RH45971

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine Saint Préfert 2015

This is the young-vine cuvée from this much-lauded estate. A fine-flavoured Châteauneuf of elegance and refinement rather than sheer power. 2019–2029.

RH45971 Bottles6 Price£130.00 Type
RH45871

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine Giraud 2015

Marie and François Giraud are a sister-and-brother team with a long family tradition behind them, welded to a finely constituted estate, scattered among some of the best slopes in Châteauneuf. 100-year-old grenache provide the backbone of this splendid and rich wine, with 35% syrah working especially well in 2015. 2021–2028.

RH45871 Bottles6 Price£130.00 Type
RH45911

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Piedlong, Brunier 2015

From the Vieux Télégraphe stable via two plots of very old vines, one being Piedlong and the other on Pignan near to the iconic Château Rayas. Daniel Brunier has blended the two sites skilfully to create this mix of 90% grenache and 10% mourvèdre, showing an irresistible combination of spices, plums and figs. 2022–2036.

RH45911 Bottles6 Price£130.00 Type
RH45891

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Mourre de Perdrix, Domaine de Charbonnière 2015

Mourre des Perdrix is the name of a vineyard that is just below the more famous La Crau but on mainly sandy soils and owned entirely by this rejuvenated estate. The mourvèdre grape plays a big part here, accounting for nearly 20% of the blend. A great success in 2015. 2020–2030.

RH45891 Bottles6 Price£133.00 Type
RH45901

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Domaine de Terre Ferme, Paul Jaboulet Aîné 2015

A superb blend of old-vine grenache with 20% mourvèdre from vines close to La Nerthe. This has concentration and structure with great length of flavour. 2023–2032.

RH45901 Bottles6 Price£158.00 Type
RH45921

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Etienne Gonnet, Domaine Font de Michelle 2015

A very rich and opulent Châteauneuf. Font de Michelle’s top cuvée has less grenache and more syrah and mourvèdre, and the grapes all come from old vines on the plateau de la Crau. 2020–2035.

RH45921 Bottles6 Price£175.00 Type
RH45941

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Quartz, Clos du Caillou 2015

15% syrah in this cuvée deepens the colour and accentuates the sense of structure. More obviously backward than Clos du Caillou’s Réserve wine. Wonderfully fragrant with dark fruit, kirsch, spice and herbs, joined by raspberry and strawberry notes on the palate and very soft tannins. 2021–2033.

RH45941 Bottles6 Price£183.00 Type
RH45931

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Bois Pointu, Blagden and Gonnet 2015

Yorkshire meets Provence in a superb joint effort! The vines in two separate plots are tended by Yorkshireman Charles Blagden and the wine made by Guillaume Gonnet of Font de Michelle. The unusual feature is the 15% counoise, which brings fragrance and acts as a brake on the exuberant grenache. Perfumed, with fresh pepper and liquorice flavours on the palate. 2022–2035.

RH45931 Bottles6 Price£185.00 Type
RH44101

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe 2015

Vieux Télégraphe seems to have found a new gear. After a fine 2013 and 2014, the new vintage is an absolute classic: both elegant and powerful at the same time. 2023–2040. Halves and Magnums available.

RH44101 Bottles6 Price£210.00 Type
RH43961

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Barbe-Rac, Chapoutier 2015

This comes from an individual plot of 90-year-old grenache. No oak is used so the flavour is of fruit in abundance; rich, figgy and fat. 2019–2028.

RH43961 Bottles6 Price£220.00 Type
RH45691

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Château de Beaucastel 2015

A fine Beaucastel, 30% each mourvèdre and grenache and the rest split between all the other varieties. The counoise grape, little known but becoming increasingly important here, adds finesse to the blend. Thick blackcherry and spice flavours with a lot of density and matter. 2024–2040. Magnums available.

RH45691 Bottles6 Price£225.00 Type
RH45951

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Chaupin, Domaine de la Janasse 2015

This is made from nearly 100% grenache from north-facing slopes on the sandier parts of La Crau. 2015 is exceptionally full and powerful yet the north-facing vines are able to retain freshness. A delightful combination. 2020–2033.

RH45951 Bottles6 Price£225.00 Type
RH44071

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Clos des Papes 2015

Outstanding Châteauneuf mingling liquorice, dark cherry, fig, herbs and spice in a thickly textured and richly flavoured whole. Vincent Avril compares it to a gentler, more elegant version of his 2005. 2022–2040. Magnums available.

RH44071 Bottles6 Price£275.00 Type
RH46351

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Collection Charles Giraud, Domaine de Saint Préfert 2015

The top wine from Saint Préfert is a blend of 60% grenache and 40% mourvèdre in 2015, the fruit all undergoing whole-bunch fermentation to imbue the wine with complexity. With flavours of liquorice, blackcurrant and fig, this is quite splendid. 2022–2034.

RH46351 Bottles6 Price£288.00 Type
RH45991

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes, Domaine de la Janasse 2015

Big, multi-dimensional and imposing red. Grenache dominates but there is a little over 20% syrah and mourvèdre, which add complexity to the structure. Fabulously concentrated and long. 2024–2035.

RH45991 Bottles6 Price£320.00 Type
RH46001

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve, Clos du Caillou 2015

A potent blend of very ripe grenache, alongside 45% mourvèdre. Spicy, liquorice-flavoured fruit and great depth. 2022–2037.
