About the Wine

When was the last time you had a Chateauneuf du Pape that is perfectly aged, comes with multiple 91+ scores, and offers the weight and warmth of your favorite winter jacket and still stylish enough to make you feel elegant and refined?

All of this at 50% for less than $30? You haven't seen it, because we haven't offered it. Grab this wine before it's gone.

A pure expression of the terroir of the vineyard sites Gallimardes and Les Petites Serres lieux-ditsSituated in the sunniest and warmest area of Chateauneuf du Pape in the south, 2 miles east of the Rhone River. Spending 12 months in concrete tanks winemaker, Earl Vignobles Fabre, elects to have Grenache take centerstage for the 2012 vintage. Patiently waiting in the cellars this wine is in its peak drinking window and begging to be drunk.

The practice of aging red wine in concrete instead of oak or stainless steel has gained popularity over the years. It produces a silky smooth texture, increased minerality, and allows the wines to age properly without the influence of oak on the flavor profile. If you enjoy Pinot Noirs or red blends with hints of smoke or game this wine will sing on your palate.    

The Cuvee of "Two Sisters" will WOW you. Very limited.

Tasting Notes: Red wine. 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah. On the nose, notes of raspberry, cherry, clove, and smoked meat. Medium bodied with a silky texture. This wine achieves perfect harmony in the glass.

Reviews

The Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Deux Sœurs is brilliant. It is comprised of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah, from the Gallimardes and Les Petites Serres lieux-dits, that was completely destemmed and aged 12 months all in concrete tank. It exhibits plenty of kirsch, toasted bread, caramelized meats and spice on the nose. Medium-bodied, supple, pure and elegant, with a finesse-driven style and pretty tannin, it is already upfront and approachable. I wouldn’t push the aging curve here and would opt for drinking bottles over the coming 4-5 years. ~91 Wine Advocate 

Opaque ruby. High-pitched aromas of fresh red berries, lavender and peppery spices, with a mineral nuance building in the glass. Juicy, focused and refreshingly brisk, offering vibrant raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that stretch out and become sweeter with air. Finishes on a spicy note, with very good thrust and smooth tannins. ~91 Vinous Media
