Clos des Papes est l'un des meilleurs vins de l'appellation Châteauneuf-du-Pape, dont il offre une interprétation élégante. Très régulier d'un millésime à l'autre, Clos des Papes est composé d'un assemblage à large dominante de grenache (environ 65%). Il est tiré de vieilles vignes (50 ans et plus) aux rendements faibles; un élevage de 15 mois en grands foudres (pas de bois neuf) précède la mise en bouteille. Clos des Papes fait partie des grands vins à acheter chaque année.

Notes de dégustation


Tasted out of bottle, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape comes from miniscule yields of 13 hectoliter per hectare (25-39 hectoliters per hectare is normal for the appellation), and hits 14.8% natural alcohol. It has a darker, slightly more concentrated, austere feel than the 2014, and has ample kirsch, blackberry, peppery and crushed rock-like aromas and flavors. Vincent commented that he thinks this vintage will shut down after a few years in bottle, so if you’re going try one in its youth, find the corkscrew. While obviously not a great wine, it’s certainly outstanding and has considerable charm and elegance. It will also have 10-15 years of overall longevity. - JD 10/2015


Brilliant ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of ripe red berries, incense, garrigue and smoky minerals convey a sexy Asian spice nuance in the background. Supple, seamless and alluringly sweet, offering intense black raspberry and floral pastille flavors that stain the palate. Smooth, seamless and concentrated but energetic as well, with velvety, slow-building tannins giving shape to a very long, spice- and mineral-accented finish. Drink: 2021-2028.


From a difficult vintage, the 2013 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is nevertheless upfront and charming, with a cool climate-like feel in its kirsch and darker berry fruits, spice, pepper, and mineral aromas and flavors. It opens up beautifully with time in the glass, is medium-bodied and elegant, and has plenty to love. Drink it anytime over the coming decade. - JD 08/2018
