“The color is ruby red with purples highlights. The nose is full flavored and very attractive on fruit (fresh strawberry jam), softly spiced. The palate is tasty with intense candied red fruit aromas and a nice balance between sweetness and freshness. This up-front Cotes du Rhone combines the best of power and elegance.”
Harvesting is carried out by hand picking each plot separately. The grapes are harvested at full maturity and carefully sorted, then slightly destemmed and crushed. Then fermentation takes place under strict temperature control. After the final blend is determined, the wine is aged in oak and stainless-steel tanks
Jean-Pierre Boisson, former long-serving mayor of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, runs Domaine Père Caboche with his children Emily & Nicolas. Members of the Boisson family have been both winemakers and blacksmiths for generations. The family nickname of Caboche derives from the old Provencal word for ‘horseshoe nails’.
