"The colour is bright and pale yellow with sustained green highlights. The nose is intense and complex with hints of blackcurrant bud, aromas of apricot in syrup and a nice touch of orange blossom. The mouth is smooth and well-balanced between freshness and sweetness with white flesh fruit aromas and delicate floral notes. The finish is full and smooth with flavors of citrus fruit." - Emily Boisson

Domaine Père 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, he runs Domaine Père Caboche with his daughter Emile.
Jean-Pierre and Emile are proud to follow a traditional approach to winemaking that respects the environment and allows for the vines to grow naturally.
