    Domaine des Peres de l'Eglise, France
    Domaine des Peres de L’Eglise has a long history in the Southern Rhone Valley as the family has been involved in grape growing and winemaking in the region dating back to 1884. However, the modern era for the property begins quite recently, with the start of high-quality wines only beginning to take place with the 2007 vintage. Stepping back just a bit, prior to the birth of Domaine des Peres de L’Eglise in 1978, the estate was known as Domaine de Saints Peres. Today, the property is owned by the Cardassi family. Domaine des Peres de L’Eglise owns 15 hectares in the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation. 13.5 hectares are planted for the production of red wine grapes. 1.5 hectares are reserved for the white wine, grape varieties. The terroir for the red wine is clay and limestone soils. The vines are scattered over the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation with their best vines being planted in Les Bosquets, Cabrieres, Grand Pierre, Les Grands Serres, Terre Blanche, Vaudieu and Coste Froid.

    Famous for its full-bodied, seductive and spicy reds with flavor and aroma characteristics reminiscent of black cherry, baked raspberry, garrigue, olive tapenade, lavender and baking spice, Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the leading sub-appellation of the southern Rhône River Valley. Large pebbles resembling river rocks, called "galets" in French, dominate most of the terrain. The stones hold heat and reflect it back up to the low-lying gobelet-trained vines. Though the galets are typical, they are not prominent in every vineyard. Chateau Rayas is the most obvious deviation with very sandy soil.

    According to law, eighteen grape varieties are allowed in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and most wines are blends of some mix of these. For reds, Grenache is the star player with Mourvedre and Syrah coming typically second. Others used include Cinsault, Counoise and occasionally Muscardin, Vaccarèse, Picquepoul Noir and Terret Noir.

    Only about 6-7% of wine from Châteauneuf-du-Pape is white wine. Blends and single-varietal bottlings are typically based on the soft and floral Grenache Blanc but Clairette, Bourboulenc and Roussanne are grown with some significance.

    The wine of Chateauneuf-du-Pape takes its name from the relocation of the papal court to Avignon. The lore says that after moving in 1309, Pope Clément V (after whom Chateau Pape-Clément in Pessac-Léognan is named) ordered that vines were planted. But it was actually his successor, John XXII, who established the vineyards. The name however, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, translated as "the pope's new castle," didn’t really stick until the 19th century.

    Full-bodied and flavorful, white Rhône blends originate from France’s Rhône Valley. Today these blends are also becoming popular in other regions. Typically some combination of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier form the basis of a white Rhône blend with varying degrees of flexibility depending on the exact appellation. Somm Secret—In the Northern Rhône, blends of Marsanne and Roussanne are common but the south retains more variety. Marsanne, Roussanne as well as Bourboulenc, Clairette, Picpoul and Ugni Blanc are typical.
