Domaine de Villeneuve
Perfect terroir and old vines are the prerequisites for complex deep wines full of character. Domaine de Villeneuve is richly blessed with both. The Grenache, Clairette and Cinsault vines, which are over 80 years old, grow in the immediate vicinity of Château de Beaucastel. Due to their biblical age, they do not produce a lot of income, but compensate for it with even more finesse and elegance. Like this one Chateauneuf du Pape.
A special feature of this domain is the tradition of not letting the grape varieties grow and ripen in different plots and then vinifying them separately. The assemblage takes place in the vineyard. The five different grape varieties grow in a colorful mix in the vineyards and are then processed together in order to guarantee the terroir specificity as optimally as possible.
