Domaine du Pere Caboche Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc 2018
This winery is owned by a very long line of wine growers, winemakers and black-smiths named Boisson since the 1700's. In the old times, the Boisson, had two jobs at once: they were both wine-makers and black-smiths. The name of the estate comes from this second profession, because the nails used to fix the shoe under the horse’s foot are called, in the regional language, “caboche”. It was, at the time, the nickname used to call the Boisson family. That is how the first bottles of the Domaine du Père Caboche appeared in Châteauneuf du Pape. Since then, the family has had parcels that have remained in the family, without there being any exchange or sale. The vines which are still there now are over 100 years old and produce an outstanding wine. The oldest parcel was planted in 1906. Today they are vine-growers from father to son and daughter. The color is bright on a pale yellow with light green hues. The nose is intense and well-balanced with hints of fresh ripe fruit such as white peach and pear, followed by flavors of ginger and spices. The mouth is full and refreshing. The finish is long and silky. This is a full-flavored and elegant white wine.
