About

Product Description:

Domaine des Garriguettes has one 0.3 hectare parcel in Châteauneuf-du-Pape Called ‘La Borne’ that they work by hand and by horse. The vineyard is located at the south of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in a cooler zone, at 80m with the typical galets roulés soil. The goblet-trained vineyard was planted in 1964 and is vinified 100% whole cluster and produced without added sulfites. La Borne is a truly unique and new expression in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with its light frame, bright and juicy fruit, and irrepressible energy.

It is not an overstatement to say that in La Borne, Domaine des Garriguettes gives us the blueprint for a new style of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, one that does not rely on over-ripeness or the excessive use of oak barrels to provoke interest. On the contrary, La Borne displays the perfume, elegance, and grace associated with some of the most celebrated examples of the region from wineries like Château Rayas and Charvin. The only downside is the tiny production of the vineyard, which yields an average of just 1800 bottles per vintage. A true, singular gem worth seeking out.
