DOMAINE DU PERE CABOCHE

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Southern Rhone

For centuries, Jean-Pierre Boisson’s ancestors have been both wine growers and blacksmiths. The family’s nickname “Caboche” derives from the old Provencal word for horseshoe nails, by which the estate is still known. Jean-Pierre is the former long-serving mayor of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Today, his daughter Emilie runs the domaine and is proud to follow a traditional approach to winemaking that respects the environment and allows for the vines to grow to their best potential.

Domaine du Père Caboche covers 156 acres of which 42 acres  located in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and the rest Cotes du Rhone or IGP Vaucluse.

La Mirande
Responsible farming, manual harvest for perfect control of the levels of ripeness and acidity. Triage, light manual pressing and destemming.  Temperature controlled maceration for about 30 days.  Aging for 12 to14 months in oversized oak casks.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape is located in the northwest part of the Vaucluse, a French department created in the late 18th century. It is named after the narrow valley where the River Sorgue rises (Vallis Clausa in Latin).The Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation is bordered on the west by the Rhône River, and the famous Mont Ventoux is located 40 km to the east.

The town of Châteauneuf is on a hillside, and features the ancient castle at an altitude of 361 feet. The surrounding vineyards are on rolling land and a large plateau that starts west of Mont-Redon (390 feet), going eastward to its highest point in Pied Long (420 feet) and finishing southward in the lieu-dit La Crau. In the Tertiary Period, 60 million years ago a shallow primeval sea, a continuation of the Mediterranean, flooded the Rhône Valley. When this receded, it left behind sedimentary rock (bedrock), especially safre, an aggregate of sandy sediment, and banks of clay and limestone. When the Alps were formed during the late Tertiary and early Quaternary ice ages, followed by a warm period causing the glaciers to melt, the hollowing out of sedimentary rock created the Rhône Valley. As a result, many tons of pebbles and quartzite were swept down from the Alps along hundreds of kilometers, rubbed smooth and round, and deposited in layers on top of the bedrock. A series of 4 ice ages, punctuated by warm interglacial periods, accounts for the terraces in Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

The lowest terraces, which you can see when approaching Châteauneuf-du-Pape from Sorgues, were formed during the Würmian Period (100,000 years ago). The soil is very heterogeneous here, consisting of varying combinations of clay, sand, limestone and marl. The surface is covered with alternating large and small pebbles, or even stoneless in some places.

When Châteauneuf-du-Pape became the first French appellation contrôlée wine in 1936, 13 different grape varieties were authorized each contributing its characteristics to: color, structure, fragrance, freshness and longevity. The permitted red and white grape varities are: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Clairette, vaccarèse, Bourboulenc, Roussanne, Counoise, Muscardin, Picpoul, Picardan and Terret noir.
