SOUTHPARK CLT | Châteauneuf-du-Pape Wine Dinner with John Junguenet

All Châteauneuf-du-Pape Wine Dinner


John E Junguenet

The renowned and historic village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape is located between Orange and Avignon, at the Mediterranean end of France’s southern Rhône Valley. This classic region is famous for powerful, full-bodied red wines, largely made from the “Holy Trinity” of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, among a myriad of other allowed grapes.

With these three varieties behind the vast majority of the appellation’s red wines, there’s ample diversity across a broad range of styles and profiles. However, a total of eighteen red and white grape varieties are approved for use, further expanding the amazing spectrum of possible wines. Grenache is the principle variety of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, being well-suited to the terroir and climate: think juicy and savory wines with jammy red-fruit and black-cherry flavors and no shortage of alcohol. It’s typically aged in either vats or oak barrels for up to 18 months to create a rich and complex wine. But this is only the beginning…
