AOC Châteauneuf-du-Pape


The Chante-Perdrix domain was established by Etienne Pécoul in 1896. After Henri Nicolet, Guy Nicolet, it is now Frédéric and Franck Nicolet (third and fourth generations) who presently exploit the 18 hectares surrounding the property. Taking one year with another, the production is 550 hectoliters of red and 40 hectoliters of white.
The vines, average age of 45 yrs are located in the southern quarter of the appellation zone, planted on shingles from the Rhone river. So our wines Chante-Perdrix have a large percentage of Grenache (about 80%) vinified with syrah, mourvèdre and muscardin for the main ones produce rich wines, fortified (around 14° of alchohol) and with intense ruby color.

In the hearth of Châteauneuf du Pape

One could think that the name Chateauneuf-du-Pape comes from the construction, by the Popes of Avignon, (in particular Jean XXII) of a castle erected on the ruins of a former castle. In reality, this is not the case at all.
Far away from the agitation of the court of Avignon, the Popes constructed their property at Chateauneuf-du-Pape in the XIV century and also planted vine.


It started as a production on a very small scale, then expanded with time. Its real distinction dates back to the XVIII C, it gained recognition as of 1929 with the appellation of controlled origin Chateauneuf-du-Pape which instituted strict regulations : the limits of the region to be cultivated, the thirteen authorized grape varieties, the pruning, the selective sorting of grapes during harvest, the vinification, and minimum degree.

The "terroir"

It stretches across the parish of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, a part also extends to the parishes of Bédarrides, Courthézon, Orange and Sorgues. Presence of shingle, pebbles cover a large portion of the appellation area. Made up of levels of plateaus and terraces it benefits, thanks to the mistral, from exceptional climatic conditions which favor sunny days.
