Châteauneuf-du-Pape rouge, Pierre André - 2018

Pierre André was the precursor of organic viticulture in Châteauneuf. His daughter, Jacqueline, now runs the estate and continues his work. The very old vines are vinified in whole bunches and then aged in large containers. The resulting wine is moving with its nose of chocolate, cherry and spices. It is dense and charming on the palate, with the solar grace of the vintage.

Viticulture

Pierre André is the name of the founder of the estate, who was one of the precursors of organic farming in the appellation. Most of the vineyard is divided into 3 main areas: Les Bedines, La Gardiole and L'Etang. The heritage of old vines is more than exceptional: the average age is between 70 and 80 years old and some vines may be pre-phylloxera! Massal selections, integral soil cultivation, AB and biodynamic treatments, very low yields.

Oenology

The grapes are harvested by hand, in small crates, and then sorted on a table before vatting. After crushing, the vinification, with indigenous yeasts, takes place entirely in whole bunches. Vatting lasts 3 to 4 weeks, during which only pumping over is carried out and sometimes some delestage. The press juice is obtained by a very gentle pressing. The wine is then aged for 2 years in concrete vats or large oak barrels.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Rack of glazed pork - Medallions of venison - Crépinette of lamb.
