Magnum Clos des Papes 2017 rouge | Châteauneuf-du-Pape
The red Clos des Papes 2017 is, like almost all Clos des Papes, a very good vintage that can be kept in the cellar for at least 5 years before tasting. This wine is very concentrated and powerful, with very present but ripe, silky tannins. The balance is there because the acidities are good. We will have to be patient.
The quality of the product we are looking for imposes a rigorous work of the soil right up to the bottle. We have always decided to make only one wine because the blending of our grape varieties and our terroirs increases the complexity of our wines. 100% of our Châteauneuf-du-Pape terroirs are sold in Clos des Papes and therefore in bottles. We strive to sublimate our terroirs. We seek to produce a wine of character, with great ageing potential, balanced and fine. For this too, we wait for optimal maturity without falling into over-ripeness.
We remind you that it is imperative to consume the whites at 12°-13° and the reds at 15°-16°. You can decant them but it is not necessary to do it 2 hours before because it is always interesting to appreciate the evolution in the glass.
