Rated 90 by Jeff Leve, "The Wine Cellar Insider." Priced in the mid-range for Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Châteauneuf-du-Pape is considered the top quality wine region of Southern Rhône Valley. It was the first "AOC" in France, dating back to papal presence. Domaine Comte de Lauze Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve de Comtesse is produced from a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah. The terroir is clay with limestone with small stones and rocks in the soil. Medium bodied, with good sweetness in its spicy fruits, drink this forward, round, fresh wine young. The wine was produced from a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah. 2012 was an excellent vintage, thanks to ideal climatic conditions.
