There are flavors of white flowers, spicy notes of laurel, garrique, the aromas of earth after the rain and of resin mixed with kirsch, red berries, bilberries and blueberries. It is a wine that is at the same time powerful and elegant, with a beautiful intensity, supple tannins, long finish. It can definitely be drunk young, and you can enjoy berry notes and it can be easily be kept a decade in a good cellar.


Tasting Notes

Perhaps Gerard secret ingredient is the Pink Clairette, a rare mutation in that his grandfather made massale selections from and planted after the war. This adds a flavour of roses, and adds elegance to the palate and fragrance to the nose. Otherwise the Chaeauneuf is a blend usually of 30% Grenache that gives body, 30% Syrah that gives flavour - which can be blackcurrants but the Pink Clairette gives it a strawberry character, 30% Mourvedre that gives tannins, but soft tannins.
