Cuvée historique du domaine. Issue majoritairement de vieilles vignes de Grenache, c’est un Châteauneuf-du- Pape classique, très « terroir », avec beaucoup de profondeur... Il embaume la fraise des bois : c'est un vin solaire, qui s'impose par sa stature solide et son fruit généreux. Racé et plein, c'est une très belle réussite. Ce Châteauneuf-du-Pape "Clos" présente une couleur rubis profond, violet, avec des tanins soyeux et une bonne acidité. 

Terroir : lieux-dits très variés : Montalivet, La Crau, Les Blachières, Coste Froide, Bois Seneseau, Palestor, Bois Dauphin , Pied de Baud, Les Bousquets, Les Parrans, Les Marines, Le Bois de la Ville, Cansaud, Les Gallimardes et Les Serres. Ils s'étendent du nord au sud de l'appellation. Les sols sont principalement constitués de colluvions à quartzites, d’argiles marines, de sables et grès mollassiques..

Vinification et élevage : les cuves sont remplies par gravité avec un éraflage partiel. Le travail des vins se fait sans chercher une extraction maximale mais privilégie davantage l'élégance et la fraîcheur. 
Les jus de goutte et de presse sont élévés séparément, principalement en cuves bétons où ils réalisent leur fermentation malolactique. Après assemblage l'élevage se poursuit en foudres.

Accords mets/vin : cuisine du Sud, gibiers, grillades.

The Estate Clos du Mont-Olivet

The Clos du Mont Olivet was created in 1932 by Séraphin Sabon, and since its origins the family estate has been producing high quality, classic Châteauneuf du Pape on magnificent terroirs, as well as Côtes du Rhône wines of excellent quality.
The vineyard covers 32 hectares, 20.5 hectares of which are used for the Châteauneuf wines, which are made from a large majority of Grenache grapes, while the whites are made from Bourboulenc and Roussanne.


The domain still seems to be unknown in the area. But for how much longer...? The wines of the domain are regularly acclaimed by the finest tasters such as Parker, Bettane & Desseauve, RVF who often place Clos du Mont Olivet among the elite of the region.

The wines are always very deep, rich, imbued with their terroir, ready to stand the test of time. They will begin to peak at 10 years of age and will finish well after 20 years, depending on the vintage, when they will deliver all their aromatic complexity, which is impressive here. The Petit Mont is easier to access because of its constitution and also because of its really angelic price... As for the Côtes du Rhône, they are very good alternatives, providing a maximum of pleasure, like this Varène, which is predominantly Syrah and offers exceptional value for money... Then you may have the opportunity to touch the grail with this Papet cuvée produced only in the best vintages, which is the flagship cuvée of wine lovers.

The Clos du Mont Olivet is to be discovered as a matter of urgency because of the quality and consistency of all the vintages. Come and discover them on the website Les Passionnés du Vin. You can taste them with a multitude of dishes (game, meat in sauce, certain cheeses...) for exceptional tasting moments. Enjoy them and consume them in moderation.

The Estate Sottimano

Rino Sottimano took over the estate in 1975. His son Andrea joined him in 1994 along with Elena and Claudia. The vineyard is located in the heart of the superb Barbaresco terroirs and the Cotta, Currà, Fausoni, Pajorè and Basarin crus and now covers 18 hectares. The vines are cultivated organically with the utmost respect for the terroir. The wines are aged in barrels according to Burgundy principles (not in tuns). The wines are neither filtered nor fined. The production of the estate is gradually joining the best references of the region with prices still very reasonable considering the growing reputation of the estate. Quote from Rino Sottimano: "I always believe that every great wine is the result of serious, conscientious and passionate work in the vineyards. This is why, from day one, I have always tried to avoid all chemical products and herbicides, to preserve the natural balance of our soils."
