Cellier des Princes Les Vignes du Prince Vieilles Vignes Cotes du Rhone 2020

Spicy and juicy plummy fruit woven with appealing
warmth from the Southern Rhône.
Producer Note
Created in 1924, the Cellier des Princes is the only cooperative cellar in the
Châteauneuf du Pape area. The wines are a product of their forward-thinking
environment and show strength, power, structure and richness as a result of the hot,
dry climate and chalky, pebbled soils.
Vintage
Good rains in autumn 2019 built the soil water reserves. The mild, dry winter meant that
flowering and bud break took place early. A dry, hot summer, without heat spikes,
resulted in a long ripening season and the vines drew water from their winter reserves to
prevent hydric stress. Cooling breezes kept the vineyards fresh and in good sanitary
state. The grapes were harvested under excellent conditions, resulting in healthy
grapes. The reds are aromatic with great depth and purity of fruit, with silky tannins and
balancing freshness.
Vineyard
Sourced from various vineyards in the Côtes du Rhône appellation, the wine reflects its
origins through the terroir in which the grapes are grown. The pebbly soils produce
wines of strength and full body; the warm sandy soils deliver opulence and spice; the
chalky sandstone soils offer structure to the palate; and the clayey siliceous soils impart
richness.
Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed and fermented for six to eight days in concrete vats at
controlled temperatures of between 27 to 32°C. Regular pumping over took place to
aerate the wine imparting structure. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was
then aged for six months in vats, resulting in a fruit driven wine.
Tasting Note
Full of juicy red-berried fruit interwoven with appealing warm and savoury flavours from
the Southern Rhône. Smooth and easy drinking with a supple structure, light tannins
