This outstanding Chateauneuf-du-Pape has an alluring deep and bright ruby presence. The aromas are fruity and spiced. Reminiscent of ripe berries, cherries, warm spices and truffles. The palate is elegant and well balanced, fleshy and powerful, with long lasting grip and soft spices.
Invented by Charles Brotte in 1952, the Fiole du Pape tells many tales. For some, its origin comes from a great fire in Châteauneuf-du-Pape where only the cellar and distorted bottles of Châteauneuf-du-Pape survived the raging heat. For others, our ancestral technic consists in twisting our bottles in sand, explaining its sandy texture!
Romantic but untrue! La Fiole was born from a competition of local ceramists. Its theme: "The wild movement of the grenache vine twisted in the strong Provence Mistral wind". Charles Brotte took part in this competition and imagined an attractive shaped bottle to illustrate the theme. He won this competition and decided to take the opportunity to make a wine nobody else would have thought of. A wine the world and he would enjoy. Seventy years later the wine remains famous.
