GREENVILLE SC | All Châteauneuf-du-Pape Wine Dinner

All Châteauneuf-du-Pape Wine Dinner

with 

Ingrid Chambas, Vice President of Aleph Distributing

Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a French wine appellation known for its bold Grenache-based red blends. Officially, the region makes both red and white wines with up to 13 different grapes. (Unofficially, there are 20 varieties used in the region!). A great bottle of red Châteauneuf-du-Pape (CDP for short) bursts with rich raspberry and plummy fruit flavors. As it evolves, you’ll taste notes of dusted leather, game, and herbs. The Francophiles – and the actual French – call this herbal play “garrigue,” after the region’s scrubland of sage, rosemary, and lavender. As if that wasn’t enough, CdP Rouge often finishes on a sweet-strawberry tingle that glows in the back of your throat from elevated alcohol. The finish ranges from sweet to savory, depending on the vintage. White Châteauneuf-du-Pape is harder to find because only about 7% of the region’s vineyards are white grapes. Still, you’ll find many producers make small amounts that are usually a blend of the region’s white grapes, most notably, Grenache Blanc, Clairette, and Roussanne.

Join us for an evening devoted to a spectacular and iconic wine; we’ll taste a variety of producers and blends and explore the vineyards where Châteauneuf-du-Pape is born. Chef Chris Mydosh has crafted a menu to match the Provençal flavors in the wines and transport you to the Southern Rhône valley in spirit.
