At only eight hectares in size, this miniscule, ultra-traditional estate produces tiny quantities of just one wine: no luxury cuvée, no specialty blend, just a stunningly pure and complex Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Owner Claude Courtil is the godson of Henri Bonneau, one of the most legendary and revered producers in the region, and he learned everything he knows about winemaking from his godfather. Henri and Claude share a deeply held commitment to natural winemaking: manual vineyard work, traditional aging in large foudres, and bottling without intrusive fining and filtration. With incredibly old vines that average 70 years old, this is truly a special domaine, and one that is extremely deserving of your attention.

This Châteauneuf-du-Pape is made of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah 5% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, 70+ year old vines. Owner and winemaker Claude Courtil makes the wine exclusively with indigenous yeasts, and ages the wine in a combination of cement and demi-muids. Look for hugely aromatic red and dark berry, potpourri and floral scents underscored by smoky minerality and a suggestion of Asian spices. Sappy, focused and impressively deep yet lively, offering alluringly sweet raspberry, cherry compote and spicecake flavors.

Though tight and grippy, this has a live wire of racy, iron-edged minerality spreading out from the core, providing a matrix for the range of plum reduction, cherry paste, red licorice, sweet bay leaf, lavender, cassis bush and juniper notes to build off of. A wild brambly feel drives the finish. This is distinctive and should provide plenty of intrigue as it ages. Best from 2024 through 2036. 8,500 cases made, 600 cases imported.

Brilliant ruby. Spice-accented red and blue fruit, floral and spice qualities on the expansive nose, along with a hint of musky garrigue. Juicy raspberry, boysenberry, candied lavender and licorice flavors smoothly blend depth and energy and betray no rough edges. The long, focused finish features smoothly interwoven tannins and a strong echo of sappy red fruit.
