Domaine du Pere Caboche Chateauneuf du Pape 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fresh and slightly creamy on the nose with lovely aromas of blueberry and raspberry candy framed by hints of hay, paprika and ink along with a light stewed tomato note. Soft and easy on the palate, this shows off that slight stewy tomato note early on the palate but the savory aspects, along with dried floral tones and herbal notes, help to frame the modest and slightly muddied strawberry flavors here. The berry fruit sticks around on the moderately long finish and this shows some fine grained tannins that lurk beneath the fruit. Easy drinking and quite typical. 86pts

Domaine du Père Caboche:
For generations my family has been both wine growers and blacksmiths. My father Théophile Boisson was orphaned when he was only three years old, hence he was unable to train to as a blacksmith. Fortunately his mother helped foster a keen interest in grapes and wine, that led to him becoming a wine maker. The family nickname of “Caboche” derives from the old Provencal word for horseshoe nails, by which our estate is still known.
