Châteauneuf-du-Pape: Domaine du Père Caboche 'Elisabeth Chambellan' 2021
"Framboise, sappy flowers, hints of pepper, and garrigue all emerge from the 2021 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes Elisabeth Chambellan, a perfumed, elegant, medium to full-bodied beauty with tons to love. Showing the more seamless, elegant, graceful style of this estate, it will drink nicely right out of the gate. 92-94/100."

'Elisabeth Chambellan' is the senior, flagship cuvée - it hails from a parcel of 100 year-old vines grown on La Crau plateau. It is from an almost identical blend of grapes to 'Domaine du Père Caboche' principal bottling, but is denser and darker and more structured and age-worthy. It carries the house signature of lashings of ripe red fruit that makes it hard to resist drinking from the time of bottling.

|The grapes are hand harvested from 80 to 100 year-old vines and put in particularly shallow buckets to protect the fruit from being crushed prematurely. The grapes are then fermented in large thermo-regulated stainless steel vats for 21 days prior to being matured in traditional old wooden tonneau.

Domaine du Père Caboche (Jean-Pierre & Emilie Boisson)
Jean-Pierre Boisson, former long-serving mayor of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, runs Domaine du 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 Provençal word for 'horseshoe nails' and their Vieilles Vignes cuvée is named after Elisabeth Chambellan, a local blacksmith's daughter who married Jean-Louis Boisson in 1772.
