Châteauneuf du Pape "Amiral G" 2017 - Château de Vaudieu

Vintage 2017: 95/100 Wine Spectator & 96/100 Parker

 

Maturity: 2020 - 2030

 Joe Czerwinski the 30 August 2019 (96/100 Parker): "Just like the Avenue, the Châteauneuf du Pape Amiral G 2017 is a 100% Grenache grown in demi-muids. Unlike the Avenue, Admiral G is more focused on opulence and power. It is full-bodied, ripe and mellow, with impressive layers of black cherries, stone fruit, liquorice and chocolate spice cake. Concentrated and chewy on the finish, it has all the ingredients for greatness - and it should drink well for at least a decade. Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent notes".

 

This classic wine represents the main cuvée characteristic of the estate's style.

With this superb cuvée, the Domaine wished to pay homage to the Admiral de Gérin and the Grenache, the admiral of the Châteauneuf-du-pape grape varieties.

Grape variety: 100% Grenache noir.

Terroir : This cuvée is made from one of our best plots of Grenache noir on a soil of rolled pebbles and red clay situated on one of the highest points of the Villafranchian plateau of Chateauneuf-du-pape.

Harvest: After waiting for optimal ripeness, the grapes were harvested by hand on September 27th 2017.

Vinification: The grapes are destemmed and crushed then conveyed into a truncated-cone-shaped concrete vat. The temperature is maintained at around 25°C during alcoholic fermentation. Maceration lasts about 30 days during which pumping over and racking over are carried out daily according to the tastings of our oenologist Philippe CAMBIE.

Ageing : The Grenache grapes are aged for 18 months in new 600l demi-muids.

Tasting: This cuvée, in homage to the founder of Château de Vaudieu, shows both the finesse and the power of Grenache. On the nose, it presents notes of Provencal herbs and morello cherry jam, while the palate is balanced between a powerful fruit and a minerality characteristic of the terroir.

Food and wine pairing: A Navarin of lamb, a braised rib of beef, a roast suckling pig, or a blood pigeon.
