Description

Grape variety

The blending of grape varieties is a characteristic of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. In “La Bernardine” red, Grenache is the main grape used in the blend, with a smaller proportion of Syrah and Mourvèdre. The Grenache is a grape variety that brings a natural sweetness to the blend, which gives the wine elegance, silky tannins, and great finesse.

Ageing potential

10 to 15 years

Soil

Quaternary period terraces with large, round pebbles, emanating from the former Rhône riverbed, on the surface. There are several terroirs in Châteauneuf-du-Pape composed of large, round pebbles, Miocene safres, and Villafranchian terraces on clay matrix.

Harvest
The grapes are carefully selected during the harvesting. Compulsory to obtain the Appellation, this sorting allows to have the best bunches of grapes.
