Châteauneuf du Pape: Domaine du Père Caboche Rouge 2019
"The classic cuvée from this estate, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape is Grenache dominated yet includes a splash of Syrah and Mourvèdre. It's raised in a mix of foudre, stainless steel, and concrete tanks. It's a beautiful wine in the making and has a fresh, elegant, already complex style that has lots of red, black, and blue fruits, notes of violets and orange blossom, medium-bodied richness, and silky tannins. It's going to drink nicely right out of the gate and evolve for 15 years. Drink 2020-2035. 91-93/100."

This is the Boissons principal red bottling of Châteauneuf', called simply 'Domaine du Père Caboche', which hails from mature rootstock on the Le Crau plateau. It is blended from 70% Grenache Noir, 10% each of Mourvèdre and Syrah and a diverse 'field blend' of lesser varieties. It is always a hedonistic and sensual offering. It has a bright red fruit bouquet and juicy, hedgerow berry palate supported by silky, soft tannins.

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.
