Description

Domaine des Peres de L’Eglise Chateauneuf du Pape is produced from a blend of 85% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre. The terroir is rocks, sand, limestone and clay soil. The grapes are spread out in various vineyards as they use vines planted in the Cabrieres, Coste Froide, les Grandes Serres and les Terres Blanches lieux-dits. The grapes are partially destemmed. The wine is aged in foudres, used, French oak barrels and tank.

Estate

Domaine des Peres de L’Eglise has a long history in the Southern Rhone Valley as the family has been involved in grape growing and wine making in the region dating back to 1884. However, the modern era for the property is quite recent with the start of high quality wines only beginning to take place with the 2007 vintage. Stepping back just a bit, prior to the birth of Domaine des Peres de L’Eglise in 1978, the estate was known as Domaine de Saints Peres. Today, the property is owned by the Cardassi family.
