Vinification

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 for 12 months.

History

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’.

Terroir

The 4 main terroirs of the appellation are represented in this wine (Limestone, pebbles, sandstone/clays, sand) the most important being the famous plateau of the Crau with its pebbles which are ideal for Grenache.
