Châteauneuf du Pape

Wine Making

Domaine La Manarine practices organic viticulture. Work in the cellar is minimal with little intervention. Fermentations are left to start with indigenous yeasts, with no fining and only a light filtration is utilized if needed

Terroir

Domaine La Manarine now encompasses 33 hectares of vineyards situated largely on what is known as the “Le Plan de Dieu”. This specific terroir has been recognised as unique. Recent research has identified the particular character of the underlying soil: a deep layer consisting of more than 60% hard limestone “galets” (large smooth pebbles). The climate is typically Mediterranean: relatively hot and dry with an average rainfall of between 600 and 800 mm per year. The rains usually come in the form of thunderstorms in late August which provide the vines with the water necessary to finish the maturation process (which tends to shut down under stressful drought conditions)

Tasting

'2015' has a herbal nose, a complexity of cherry, berry Jam and a sub-tasting of spices on the palate.

How to Drink & Serve

Serve between 14-16°C. Châteauneuf can be paired with an array off food ranging from veal, cassoulet, pork and grilled beef.  To be consumed in the next 15 years.
