  • 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 This southern Rhone white is golden straw in appearance. The nose is clean with medium intensity and some nuttiness, minerality, citrus undertones and slight smoky oak. The palate is dry with good acidity, balance and a medium finish.
