Clos des Papes

Today Paul Avril runs the property together with his son Vincent Avril. As early as in 1896 Paul Avril's grandfather started bottling wine under the mark Clos des Papes. The property has today 32 ha. 3 ha. is with white varieties. 24 different parcels are spread around the town. A parcel is nearby the pope's castle and has been surrounded by walls (clos). From here came the name of the domain. A white Chateauneuf du Pape is made from equal parts of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Clairette, Bourbolenc and Picpoul. Drink young. The red chateauneuf has to be cellared 5-7 years before it tastes well. It's made from 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah and 5% others. Only one red cuvée is made. The yield is only about 25 hl/ha. The vines are "only" about 35 years old.
