Wine Express has offered this Chateauneuf du Pape from Domaine de L'Arnesque exclusively to our customers since the 2005 vintage. The Biscarrat family, owners of the Domaine, have been wine growers in the area for 6 generations. Their 12 acre Chateauneuf Du Pape vineyard is located on the southwestern hillside of the Mont Redon plateau. In 2012 for the first time they created this Cuvee Excellence using fruit from vines up to 100 years old. 100% Grenache aged in oak casks for 12 months. This wine is dense, ripe and vibrant with intense black plum fruit and exotic spice overtones. The 2012 vintage overall in the Southern Rhone rates as outstanding and this is an outstanding wine you won't want to miss this!!!
