CHATEAU MAUCOIL CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE TRADITION
Château Maucoil’s vineyards are located in the northwest of the Châteauneuf du Pape area, on the left bank of the River Rhône, and on the appellation’s three soil types: pebbles, Urgonian limestone and sand. From the Domaine’s youngest vines (40 years on average), planted with four grape varieties on sandy and pebbly soils. The yield is around 25 hl/ha and harvesting is carried out by hand, with the grape individually sorted before by grape variety and by parcel before vinification in concrete tanks. After around 30 days in vat, with pumping over, rack-and return and punching down, the wine is matured seperately for different lengths of time, in vats and barrels previously used for one vintage. The wine is then blended and bottled.
