Tasting Note

Good ruby red colour. Ripe, serious aromas of currant, chocolate, liquorice and Provençal herbs. Rich and dense but fresh and stylish, with a lively mineral quality and bright acidity. Finishes with very smooth tannins. Drink up to 2035.

Sourced from hand harvested, very old Grenache vines planted in the single vineyard 'Chaupin' which was planted in 1912 on sand and clay soils. The yields are a low 30-32 hl /ha and the grapes are picked and sorted by hand with partial destalking (80%). Maceration is for 21 days with a manual pumping over every 24hrs, oak ageing is for 12 months, 70% in large old barrels and 20% in 1/4 new barriques.


  • 93/100 - One of the wines of the vintage is the Grenache-dominated 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Chaupin. Coming mostly from a cool terroir in the northeast corner of the appellation (just to the east of Beaucastel), this wine is vinified with a small portion of stems and aged mostly in foudre (one-third is in demi-muids). It has gorgeous Grenache flair in its black raspberry, garrigue, spring flower and licorice scented bouquet. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied, elegant, and layered 2013 that has more texture and sweet fruit than just about every other wine in the vintage. I'd drink it anytime over the coming 4-5 years, but it will have 10-15 years of overall longevity.

    • The Wine Advocate
    • Jeb Dunnuck
  • 92/100 - Bright ruby-red. Vibrant, mineral-tinged red berry and floral pastille aromas pick up note of garrigue and incense with air and show excellent clarity. Sappy, incisive and lively on the palate, offering sweet black raspberry, cherry and lavender flavors and a spicy touch of white pepper. The mineral and floral notes echo strongly on the impressively persistent finish, which is framed by silky, harmonious tannins.

    • Josh Reynolds
  • 17/20 - Fragrant spice, manages to wear its robes reasonably lightly without diluting the fruit power. This is a more delicately drawn version of Châteauneuf than most, which is blessed relief after tasting the more bruising examples.
