  • Winemaker Notes Between Orange and Avignon, on the left bank of the Rhone River, the old Pope’s Castle was edified. Pilgrims, Crusaders, Templars, Hugenots, Popes and Kings, as well as Thieves and Invaders all passed through this remarkable place. Two longstanding and well known families of Chateauneuf du Pape, Jeune and Establet, who can trace their ancestors back to the 14th century, united their properties by a marriage between Christiane Establet and Pierre Elie Jeune in 1960's, and the Domaine du Grand Tinel was established in 1972. Today, Christophe, Béatrice and Isabelle Jeune continue the family tradition of producing great wines of the region.
  • Tasting Notes Rich, ripe and easy to drink wine with an essence of fresh, peppery, dark, lush, red berries.
