AOP Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Domaine de la Graveirette 2016

€670 Flacon de 10cl

Domaine de la Graveirette nestles between Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmiral mountain chain in the heart of a Provençal village. Julien Mus has been producing a 100% biodynamic Châteauneuf-du-Pape from the vineyards here since 2015. With this 2016 vintage, he brings us a deep cherry-red wine with a pinkish rim and an intense and fruity nose. Aromatic notes of violets and peony lead into delicious cherry fruit. The mouthfeel is firm, full and fleshy with a lovely character of sweet spices and a concentrated, peppery finish. In short, an elegant wine with very nice length. Need we say more?

Winemaker

Julien Mus

After having completed studies in viti-oenology, Julien Mus began cultivating vines. In 2005, he decided to produce his own wines with his wine cellar in a former agricultural hangar in Sarrians. As the third generation of his wine family, Julien Mus inherited plots of land from his father. He subsequently expanded the size of his vineyard on the plains and on the hillsides (8 acres). Julien Mus has succeeded in promoting his passion and skills.
