Châteauneuf du Pape 2016 - Château Cabrières
Châteauneuf du Pape
Soil & terroir
The surface area of the Château Cabrières en AOC Châteauneuf-du-Pape is 20 hectares. It is spread over the three main terroirs of Châteauneuf-du-Pape: the rolled pebbles, the urgonian limestone and the sands. This diversity contributes to obtaining the aromatic complexity of the wines of the Château Cabriere.
Generally in mid-September, the harvest is exclusively manual at full maturity of the grape varieties with three selective sorting of the grapes in order to keep only the best.
Yield: Approximately 25 to 30 hl/ha.
By grape variety and by plot. After a 4-week vatting period with pumping over, delestage and pigeage, followed by malolactic fermentation, the wines are blended and undergo light filtration before being aged for 12 months in Allier oak barrels.
