Domaine Elodie Jaume - 'Cabrières' Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2021
A truly one of a kind expression of this prestige appellation. This is Elodie's very first release of this wine, and it is a triumph. This 100% Grenache from very old bush vines planted on sandy soils will open your mind to the potential delicacy that Grenache can achieve in this part of the world. It is so refined, finessed, lifted, packed full of cherry fruits and layers of flavour with a mild, almost honeyed edge. The wine spent just under two years in a concrete egg before being bottled in summer of 2023.
Made by Elodie Jaume, a young winemakers who for the past 8 years has made all the wines for her family's estate Domaine des Chanssaud, though as of 2023 has converted the entirety of the estate to 'Domaine Elodie Jaume' to solidify her own ideas and her own style.
