Since 1670, the Féraud family has cultivated vines in the south of France, in the famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape region. Paul Féraud and his daughter Laurence continue the tradition today, focusing upon old vines and low yields. Made of 80% Grenache, 6% Syrah, 4% Mourvèdre and 10% local varieties, this beautiful 2015 is a classic example from the region. Serve with braised beef, Coq au Vin, stews, charcuterie, pâté, sausages and cheeses, especially Comté Gruyere and Delice de Bourgogne.

Jeb DunnuckA vintage compared to 2010 by Laurence, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape looks to be one of the big successes in the vintage. Possessing a ripe, rounded, sexy style backed up by solid density and concentration, it offers classic Pegau notes of currants, pepper, and cured meats. Big, rich, concentrated and beautifully textured, it offers a rare depth of fruit and richness in the vintage.

VinousLurid ruby-red. Exotic, intensely perfumed aromas of candied red and blue fruits, lavender and peppery spices, joined by a slowly emerging hint of garrigue. Fleshy and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated raspberry, cherry and fruitcake flavors and a spicy suggestion of white pepper. Shows excellent focus and a seamless quality on the finish, which is framed by suave, slow-building tannins.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee (scheduled to be bottled November 2017) is a very fine, elegant example of Châteauneuf du Pape. Garrigue and violet notes spring forth on the nose, followed by layers of spice, hints of leather and black cherry fruit. It feels lithe and delicate for a full-bodied wine, with a long, silky finish.
