Création d'Émilie Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2018
Charming Châteauneuf fit for a king (or a pope)!
Création d’Emilie is crafted by Jean-Pierre Boisson, daughter Emilie and son Nicolas at Domaine du Père Caboche. Their family has been associated with Châteauneuf du Pape for centuries now, with Jean-Pierre himself a former mayor of this premium appellation. Création d’Emilie combines the four main terroirs of the region: Le Crau, its famous, finest cru, with pebbles on red clay that contribute to the fullness and density of the wine; Les Serres, pebbles and alluvium, great for Grenache; and Les Plagnes (pebbly soil) and Le Parc (limestone), both good for Syrah. The 2018 has ripe, rounded tannins, dark fruits and herbal spice complexity. For drinking now, decant in advance and serve with roast game, lamb or ratatouille.
