Bandeau violet chatoGB


In Châteauneuf du Pape, there are several types of soils : on terraces, we find big silica pebbles which recover the ground. They play a role of thermal regulator because they release at night to the grapes the heat stored during the day. They give rather powerful wines. Then we have the grave lands, which means smaller limestone, clayey grounds which give well balanced wines and sandy grounds which underline the aromas of wines. According to the weather conditions of every vintage, these different soils express themselves more or less hard. All the art of the wine growers of the appellation is to choose the best adapted grape varieties to every soil.
