Vignobles Mayard Châteauneuf du Pape Clos du Calvaire 2015
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
For more than 100 years, the Mayard family has nurtured the land they call home in the village of Châteauneuf du Pape. The vineyard covers 43 hectares of vines that include two large plots: a 21-hectare area situated south of the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation, at Grand Coulet, and an 8-hectare area located to the east, on the famous Crau plateau. The entire estate covers around thirty parcels of land spread across highly diverse terroirs, some of them planted over a century ago. Determined to follow a policy of Agriculture Raisonnée, or sustainable farming that focuses on green issues, priority is given to expressing terroir by controlling yields. Serve with braised beef, Coq au Vin, charcuterie, pâté, sausages and cheeses, especially Comté Gruyere and Delice de Bourgogne.
Wine AdvocateAlso in need of some time in the cellar, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Clos du Calvaire is Mayard's largest-production Chateauneuf. It's a full-bodied, richly textured wine, with firm tannins on the finish, but fruit notes of nectarine and red plum persist, picking up hints of spice along the way.
