A Reliable Chateauneuf Du Pape
I made friends through wine parties for decades. Some became my die hard fans and some became distant; especially when I tend to collect more grower and biodynamic wine, even though big names sound more reliable but less value for money.
Sometimes big name might not be a guarantee for good quality. The fake wine scandal of Chateauneuf du Pape in 2018 is an example.
Among so many different labels and brands, there are negociants and growers and vintners. Raphael Michel is one of the biggest bulk wine merchant which source wine for producers for blending and bottling. In 2018, their chairman Guillaume Ryckwaert was accused of selling cheap Cote du Rhone reds to most of the big negociants as premium Chateauneuf du Pape. Since Raphael Michel has a long history and a good reputation, nearly all negociants were cheated. 500 million gallons of fake wine, equal to 2.23 million cases, were involved. Guillaume was released US 1.2 million on bail and finally was sentenced to 2 years imprisonment.
If you opened a bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape 2013 to 2016 and found it weird, most probably, you were bamboozled.
Growers always treasure their own land and serious to their grapes. Also, in most cases, the winery is right next to the vineyard, it keeps harvested grapes away from shocking during long distant transportation. Multi layer harvest berries by berries can make sure every single berry was picked at its optimum ripeness. It is similar to dinning on the Chef’s Table and sitting in a splendid dining room. Food smells better in front of the chef.
We are fortunate to have discovered a very lovely Chateauneuf Du Pape rouge by Domaine Des Carabiniers. The vineyard has a history of more than a hundred years. Annual production is around 2000 bottles. Usually Chateauneuf du Pape gives impression of bold, full bodied, powerful and expressive. This one is elegant, delicate with lots of finesse, like a red burgundy. Rich tannin but smooth, and the alcohol is well hidden. It is officially registered Demeter, the highest standard of Biodynamic; and super value for money with such quality.
