Chateauneuf du Pape is quickly becoming the It Girl of French reds, since Bordeaux and Burgundy have started to command larger budgets, and Pegau is one of the absolute blockbuster producers in the region. In 10 years, this bottle will no doubt triple in price — right now, it's highly sought after but still relatively affordable. Despite its ancient heritage, literally named for the brief time in history when the Pope shifted the center of the modern world from Rome to France, this is a red wine that drinks a bit more like a New World varietal — juicy like a Hollywood scandal, or like your favorite California Cab.
From the Domaine de Chateuamar, this is their "Secret de Nos Vignes" bottling of Chateauneuf du Pape. Castel Mar (Chateaumar) estate dates back to the 11th century. For many generations the vines at Domaine de Chateaumar have been cultivated by father and son. Today it is Jean-Felix and Frederic Souret managing the vineyard, always maintaining the greatest respect for nature: vineyards run for generations without any pesticides or herbicides.
