Clos des Papes
The talents of winemaker Paul Vincent Avril have made Close des Papes one of Châteauneuf-du-Pape's most acclaimed Domaines.
The winery has been in the Avril family for three generations and takes its name from the neighbouring ruins of the 14th Century papal castle. Paul Vincent honed his craft at the sensational Bordeaux first growth Château Mouton Rothschild, before taking the reigns of his family estate.
Here he has elevated an already iconic name into the stratosphere, and Clos des Papes' wines are now amongst the finest in Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
