Wine Spectator 93
Very tasty, with bright yellow apple, Cavaillon melon and white peach flavors gilded with hints of brioche, heather and salted butter. The long finish is polished and pure. Grenache, Clairette and Bourboulenc and Cinsault. Drink now through 2021. 3,000 cases made. JM
Chateau MaucoilView all from Chateau Maucoil
One of the oldest Chateau in the region, Chateau Maucoil's oldest parts date back to the 1st century, when a Roman legion formed a camp here around a natural spring, today called La Source de Chateau Maucoil. Located in Chateauneuf du Pape in Orange, which is named for the Dutch Prince of Nassau-Orange who resided here in the 13th century when Seigneur Joseph de la Pise first planted vineyards here, the estate is referenced in Pise's 1,000 page tome entitled, "Tableau de l'Histoire es Princes et Principaute d'Orange", which sits beneath a glass dome in the winery's tasting room. It is from this illustrated text that the family drew the inspiration for their wine labels.
