2019 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Clos des Papes, Paul Avril

Vincent Avril's wines are some of the most sought-after and genuinely exciting in the southern Rhône. Yields are always low, vinification is done in parcels - often with different varieties blended. He slowly builds up one of the most complex and nuanced Châteauneuf-du-Papes you can find.

2019 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Clos des Papes, Paul Avril
Domaine du Clos des Papes

Three generations of the Avril family, all named Paul, have worked the land since 1896. Paul Vincent Avril, who runs the estate today, trained at top places such as Chateau Mouton Rothschild before returning to Clos des Papes. He’s known for particular methods, like low yields, no new oak and no filtering, all which contribute to his wine’s complexity. Their cellar is almost a cathedral to fine wine in its grandeur, and befitting of the legendary wines the Avrils continue to produce.
