Stones and Roses

The Chateauneuf du Pape appellation is one of the most famous names in the Cotes du Rhone area.  The reds, characterised by a dark robe as well as spicy, woody and peppery aromas are definitely wines for laying down but the lesser know whites too are exquisite.  In the vineyards you can see clearly the large river pebbles which soak up the sun’s heat during the day to warm the grapes at night.
