Châteauneuf-du-Pape is one of France's most historic and famous wines. It was named after "the Pope's new house" when the Papacy relocated to Avignon in the fourteenth century and summer residences were constructed. Its sedimentary soil is covered with large pudding stones (galets) that store heat and aid in the ripening of grapes. The famous Rhône mistral winds are very prominent here and help to provide great concentration in the grapes.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape is perfectly suited for low-yielding Grenache plantings, hence the reason Chapoutier works heavily with this varietal. Chapoutier’s La Bernardine is quite unique in that it is made up of only one to three grape varieties when 13 are allowed by AOC law. With this unique approach and the low-yield of his vineyards, Chapoutier produces a rich, flavorful wine with moderate tannins.

Châteauneuf has a substantial historic presence. Its influence stretches back to the time of the popes, installed in Avignon in the 14th century. At that time, Châteauneuf-du-Pape was the summer residence of the Papacy (John XXII, Clément V, Urbain V and Innocent V), which sourced its wine from the surrounding area.
In the early 20th century, the winemakers were regularly acknowledged for their wines by a special board of judges, formed at the behest of Baron “Le Roy de Boiseaumarié.”
Châteauneuf-du-Pape is known for its amazing soil, composed of large rolled stones from the bed of the Rhône river. These stones hold the heat of the day’s sun and warm the vines in the brisk evening air. Chapoutier’s La Bernardine is quite unique in that it is made up of only one to three grape varieties when 13 are allowed by AOC law. With this unique approach and the low-yield of his vineyards, Chapoutier produces a rich, flavorful wine with moderate tannins.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape is known for it amazing soil of large rolled stones which laid on the bed of the Rhône river in ancient times. These stones hold the heat of the day’s sun and warm the vines in the brisk evening air.
