A father-and-son team, Paul and Vincent Avril run the firm and are already established as one of the very finest wine making-partnerships in the southern Rhône. The domaine's situation is not helped by having plots of vines scattered throughout the area, but this does mean that they can spread the length of harvesting over a longer period of time and get the very best from each of their sites. The blend, though this will vary annually depending on conditions, is predominantly Grenache (65%) with the remaining being made up of Mourvèdre, Syrah and a tiny amount of Counoise. Châteauneuf-du-Pape comes in many guises, its popularity has led to unscrupulous merchants driving prices up, and therefore quality down, to achieve light, thin wines that are frequently part-vinified by the carbonic maceration process more often seen in a Beaujolais. To find the true character of these wonderful wines which age so well, one has to search out the dedicated growers such as the Avrils.

The Burgundian-styled 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape is drinking at point today. Possessing beautiful notes of forest floor, truffles, spice, garrigue and sweet cherry and kirsch like fruit, this beauty has notable freshness and purity, medium to full-bodied richness, fine tannin and a layered, integrated texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. There's no need to delay gratification here and I'd enjoy bottles over the coming 4-5 years.
Wine Spectator - 87 See more...
Very pretty, almost delicate, of medium body and medium concentration. The soft and supple tannins are sleek and easy to appreciate. It'll be hard to resist enjoying it on release, with its burst of red and black fruit on the succulent finish. Drink now through 2006. 8,915 cases made.
Wine Enthusiast - 88 See more...
More harmonious at this stage than the property's Les Choregies luxury cuvée, this wine's supple black cherry and dark chocolate flavors are framed by earthy, leathery notes that culiminate in a complex finish of coffee, earth and juicy fruit.
